Painting depicts red store building in the middle of the composition. Storefront signs read “Groceries,” “Coca-Cola,” and “Meats.” There are trees behind the building on both sides, a fence extends from both sides of the store, and a road runs in front of the store. Painting is signed by the artist in the bottom left corner.
Painted by Jim Harrison, a renowned South Carolina artist best known for his work in classic American landscapes and advertisement work with Coca-Cola. Harrison entered into a licensing agreement with Coca-Cola over five decades ago. Hammer Galleries of New York describes him as “the country’s leading Twentieth Century advertising artist.” His work is sold through his own gallery, Jim Harrison Prints, in Denmark, S.C.
