About the Artist

Duke was a master of hand painted theater art. In the early days of cinema, advertisements were hand painted on wooden boards by artists. Duke painted this in 1931 for the Pinney theater in Boise, Idaho.

Sometimes the movie advertisements were more elaborate like the one painted in 1939.
Duke was drafted during World War II. In addition to being a soldier, he was an artist for the Army.
