Wow! What a treat!  Patrick Nagel thought that the Ballentine's ads were the images that made his career soar.  (Some years previous the original guache with the train was sold by his estate.) 

I have seen the Cissy Houston and Charlene covers.  I have never seen the other two.  Many thanks to TheSeatedMan!

Nagel Angel,
 
When I first saw these posters, my head was blown.  I called all over Bank of America to find the originals.  Sadly, no luck.  The last poster has special significance because it is the only Nagel image of which I am aware where the subjects are sharing an intimate moment.  That goes against the Nagel theme of aloof beauty.

Wow!  I have to agree with TheSeatedMan;  this is my favorite of the Ballantine's ads.
What I love about Nagel is we can all find something different in them.   This woman, to me,
looks like Claudette Colbert, but I watch It Happened One Night more often than I watch anything
with Garbo.

So originally I ran across the following of just the woman with the horse for sell (way out of my price range) so I went on a deep search for information and ran across someone who had these posted. Perhaps this came from one of you here in the past? Unfortunately I really don't know if this is a book or a magazine. Again perhaps someone else here would know.

Me too my favorite era is his later 70's. then of course the later 80's. And the pencil drawings here I had never seen before!

I hope to see many more that have never been seen.

No sorry guest_guest I bought these off of ebay. So I don't know the magazine or year though 74 does seem around the right time.
