Three Coca-Cola advertisement paintings by Norman Rockwell.
Starting in the late 1920s through the mid-1930s, Coca-Cola commissioned Norman Rockwell to paint six advertisement illustrations for the company, featuring their iconic green bottles and idyllic all-American imagery. These original illustrations were then reproduced in calendars, billboards, and print publications.Today, three of the six Rockwell illustrations are in Coca-Cola's possession, while the other three are missing, having been lent out for use in publications and never returned.
