Vintage Commercial Animation Art

Auction Details

This auction features a collection of vintage commercial animation artwork. Animation has long been an effective vehicle to deliver marketing and advertising. Some of the most iconic brands -- McDonald's, Coca-Cola, Nestle, Ford -- strategically utilized animation to form memorable impressions on viewers. In particular, brands using popular animated characters from Disney, Warner Bros. and Hanna Barbera especially resonate with audiences. While cereal, cookies, and food in general, were areas primed for animated marketing, companies such as Standard Oil, RAID, Gulf Chemicals, Northwestern Mutual and Allstate, for example, employed animated advertising and commercials as a way to present a friendlier image. This collection evokes an appreciation for the art of marketing and a narrative on our commercial history.
