Minnie Holsinger, The Farmer's Wife 36, Country Gentleman Magazine, Charles Hargens

This is blog #36 of my on-going series sharing pages from the scrap book of Minnie Holsinger, compiled in the 30s and 40s while she and Grandpa Charlier were saving to buy a farm.
This painting, for an issue of Country Gentleman Magazine, is by Charles Hargens. Wikipedia sez:
“Charles William Hargens, Jr. (1893−1997) was an American painter. He created over 3000 covers for magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post, Collier's, Country Gentleman, Farm Journal, Boys' Life, The Open Road for Boys, along with advertisements for companies such as Coca-Cola and covers for over 300 books, including the Zane Grey Western novels of the 1930s and 1940s.
He worked for over 80 years and died on January 30, 1997, at 103 years of age. He is  buried at Glenside Cemetery in Montgomery County Pennsylvania.”
