Robert Fawcett

As seen on the Today's Inspiration blog: author Manuel Auad is seeking further information about this wonderful noir-esque Robert Fawcett magazine illustration circa 1940s/50s.

Something about this image definitely stirs some buried memories - I can smell the wooden mustiness of the room; hear the spooky silence in it that makes your ears ring; see the dust particles floating under the bright desk lamp; feel the uneven temperature that comes with radiator heating - pockets of cold and pockets of warmth touching you at the same time. I also strongly smell food in the room, even though none is depicted.
