The Following comes from the back of the lithograph.

This Limited Edition Lithograph was presented in recognition and appreciation for outstanding individual contribution during their 60th Anniversary year.

(This was actually given to my Brother-In-Law on the 60th anniversary and hung in his office for many years.)

The original Corporate Portrait is an oil painting to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company. In composing this painting, the artist attempted to include all of the important elements that would symbolize this event. President Rust's office became the focal point of the painting and from that point he arranged and rearranged the elements until he had a composition that was both aesthetically pleasing and also symbolic of the event.

Their are 7 points of interests and are labeled on the back what they are and w they are located in the picture.

This lithograph comes professionally framed and matted---T is NO glass in the frame. Actually the damage was done when it fell of the wall and the glass broke. It is covered in the back and has a wire hanger.

Unfortunately t is some minor damage to the picture. I have tried to get a good picture of a scratch that runs across the side of the desk and up to the top of the desk appr. 3". T is also a scratch across the picture on the desk. Another scratch runs across the coat pocket. All of these are very thin scratches and could probably be repaired..I do not think they are noticable enough to be a problem when displayed.

If you have an interest in State Farm Insurance or know anyone in the business this would be a great addition to their office or Insurance collection.
