MOTOR Magazine, The Automotive Business Paper

September, 1930

Magazine Included



A rare surviving cover painting for the long running Motor magazine title which evolved alongside the car industry from the very early years of automobilia through the machine age of progress and invention. Robinson executed these light-hearted Americana views for this Hearst title from the 1920s through the 1950s, this work appeared as the cover for the September 1930 issue. Here, a hard working garage hand is shown using a different sort of elbow grease to pry loose a coin from a tightwad couple by explaining the workings of "Ellbo - A Super Automotive Polish".
