An original promotional painting for Rudy Vallée and his Connecticut Yankees
Gouache on board, with letters cut out and applied. Vallée formed the Connecticut Yankees in the mid-1920s, while attending Yale University. Perhaps the first 20th century pop star, Vallée was an actor, singer, and bandleader and attracted legions of fans. His last hit single was "As Time Goes By" in 1943. By repute, this painting originated from Vallée's estate.
31 1/2 x 53 1/2 in.
