Nineteenth Century Painting, Gluek’s Brewery, Minneapolis
Signed and Dated "G.S.K.'89" at Lower Right
Date/Period: 1889


Nineteenth Century Painting, Gluek’s Brewery, Minneapolis Signed and Dated ''G.S.K.'89'' at Lower Right, entire view

Material: Oil on canvas mounted within a molded walnut frame

Condition: Minor expert restoration to a tear and minor fills, relined, strong pigments,
displays beautifully.

Additional Information: Depicted are the brewery, horse-drawn carriages, a freight
train, two Victorian houses, and an extensive group of brewery outbuildings, many of
which are identified: the stable, the icehouse, and the bottlery.

Note: Gluek's Brewery was founded in Minneapolis on the banks of the Mississippi
River in 1858 by Gottlieb Gluek. He ran a successful business, and despite an 1880 fire,
Gottleib's untimely death shortly thereafter, and Prohibition, the Brewery was still
operating independently under family control until it was acquired in1964. Beer was sold
under the Gluek label until 2010, and a restaurant named after the venerable brewing
family still operates in downtown Minneapolis.

Vintage Advertising Sign –
Jantzen Swimsuits – Red Diving Girl
1923 - 1930


Vintage Advertising Sign – Jantzen Swimsuits – Red Diving Girl, entire view

95.5" x 22.5" 1.5"

Painted on tinned sheet iron

Jantzen Knitting Mills, Portland, Oregon
Extremely Rare Trade Sign

1916, when Jantzen introduced a collection of figure-hugging suits sporting shorter
shorts and even cutouts in 1916 they changed the term “bathing suit” to “swimming suit”
to justify their more revealing suits as athletic. We found a circa 1930 Jantzen
Swimwear poster featuring a closely related illustration.

1.The Red Diving Girl made her first appearance on the Jantzen catalog in 1920,
wearing her own cap and stockings. This iconic logo was designed by Frank and
Florenz Clark, freelance artists who worked with Jantzen’s advertising agency.
Billboards featuring the Diving Girl appeared along highways leading to beaches in San
Francisco, Los Angeles, and Portland. In 1921, Jantzen published its first national
advertisements for swimming suits in Vogue and Life magazines. The full-color ads
were illustrated by prominent artists such as Coles Phillips and Anita Parkhurst. It was a
gutsy and visionary move for a small knitting company in remote Portland.

Jantzen first used its slogan, "The suit that changed bathing to swimming," in an
advertising campaign in 1923. The Diving Girl began appearing on swimsuits and as
decals that showed up on automobile windshields across the country. In 1924, the
registrar of motor vehicles in Boston determined that the silhouette of a bathing girl was
too distracting and banned the decals from cars in the interest of safety. By the end of
the decade, the Diving Girl had become an international symbol, now without her cap
and stockings. The image is still part of the Jantzen logo, making the Diving Girl one of
the longest-lived apparel icons in advertising history.
