Constantin Alajálov: Sweet Temptation

The Saturday Evening Post reproduced a number of its covers as posters. A group of seven such posters with artwork by Constantin Alajálov was sold at Swann Galleries in February 2013. The magazine cover of March 12, 1949 pokes fun at the extreme difficulty of eating moderately amidst plenty, even more of a problem today than it was then.

Note:  While you're here, why not partake of a few more morsels of Mr. Alajálov's artwork?

There's more on the Saturday Evening Post's covers as well.
