Conde Nast commissioned Witold Gordon to create a series of gouaches entitled “New York Storefronts you Never See,” which were published in Vanity Fair in July 1934. In the summers of 1939 and 1940, Gordon traveled around the Southeastern United States painting what he considered to be distinctively American homes and businesses; the series of 35 gouaches was presented at The Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1941.

Subsequently, Gordon was commissioned by The New Yorker magazine to create a series of covers illustrating New York City’s idiosyncratic storefronts.
