Biography Charles Showalter
An illustrator in Chicago employed by Haddon Sundblom, Charles R.
Showalter worked on many of the signature works associated with
Sundblom such as the Coca Cola ads of the 1940s and 50s.
Specifically he did the 1948 images of
"woman-talking-to-baseball-player" and "family at soda fountain", the
1949 image of a young woman talking on the telephone, and young woman
with a writing tablet. Showalter painted those illustrations
directly for the Coca Cola Company whose headquarters were in Atlanta,
Georgia, and his model was Helen Olson, whom he described as "my
favorite model. She was the ideal-girl type. She had good
features, good animation, and I could painter her as a blond, brunette
or redhead." (Olsen) Displaying 750 of 6179 characters.
