Weekly Photo Challenge: Fall

To open up the Museum of Health Care’s artefact collection we are participating in WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge. Based on WordPress’ randomly chosen themes, we’ll offer a serendipitous peek into our collection. Check in each week for a new curiosity.
1941 Almanac from W.T. Rawleigh Co. MHC Accession #996001636

This almanac’s cover has a facsimile from a “famous oil painting” and is filled inside with calendars, promotion of various Rawleigh products and lots of recipes. On the back it reads “WITH BEST WISHES FOR // Health, Happiness and Prosperity.”

Does anyone know the name and artist of this “famous oil painting?”  This information would make a great addition to the entry in our collections catalogue.
