Vintage Trucker Painting with Pabst Blue Ribbon Signed Doyle 1970s
Regular priceSale price
Here we have a vintage painting of a lazy scene in a motel centering on a lonely can of Pabst Blue Ribbon. (Believe it or not, that's the first time I ever typed that sentence.) First, I just like looking at this vintage artwork. Second, that's exactly what the previous owner said to me. Third, have you ever seen a painting of a trucker gazing at an abandoned can of PBR? Thumbs up, way up.
The vintage painting is signed "Doyle" in the bottom right corner. The full name of the artist is still a mystery to me. The painting came out of an estate in the Twin Cities. I'm guessing the artwork is from the 70s, but it might be the 60s.
The unframed painting measures 24" tall by 20" wide. There is consistent fraying along the stapled edge of the canvas. There is horizontal craquelure, especially around the trucker's head (see pics). There are also discoloration areas, especially in the corners. Honestly, I didn't even notice the imperfections right away....I couldn't get past the scene. Sweet, sweet PBR. Hipsters unite! Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship to the continental USA only. Free shipping on the painting.
The sound of Hank Williams has to be in that motel room. The scene is utterly mundane, completely original and strangely sacred. You'll love looking at it. Just like the rest of us.
