*Illustrator and “imagineer” Arthur Radebaugh working the RCA account, 1964. Radebaugh was known for his phosphorescent paints and cutting-edge black-light paintings.
*And, of course it’s an electronic car maneuvering in a smart city. This was fifty years ago. If you removed Radebaugh’s dramatic lighting effects, all those “futuristic” high-rises would look entirely commonplace in 2014.
*Electronic GPS in the dashboard? Common as dirt.
*It’s RCA, “the most trusted name in electronics,” that didn’t make to the future; RCA was seized and destroyed by General Electric in 1985.
Blonde Woman Before an Easel (c.1903-06). Edward Hopper (American, 1882-1967). Oil on board. Whitney Museum.
Chase’s influence can be discerned in Hopper’s Blond Woman Before an Easel, where the elegance with which Hopper depicts a woman seen from behind as she paints is reminiscent of his teacher’s. Hopper’s preliminary sketch of her long graceful neck and upswept hair is a document of his working process. The model is painting a portrait; perhaps she was a member of Chase’s celebrated portrait class, which Hopper remembered as being composed of mostly women.
