About this work

This portrait of an unknown female sitter, Mary, by Norman Hepple RA RP (1908-94) was commissioned for use in Rowntree & Co. Ltd Aero chocolate advertising. It was published in the Daily Express, Daily Herald, News of the World, People, Picture Post, John Bull and Illustrated during the 1950s as part of the national Aero Girls advertising campaign devised by JWT. The work is framed and is likely to have been on display at the Rowntree factory in York until the late 1980s when the company was bought by Nestlé.
