Don Drapers Office Oil Painting

  • Donald FrancisDonDraper (Jon Hamm): Former creative director and junior partner of Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency and now a partner of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, he is the series’ main character. His past is shadowy, but he has achieved success in advertising. He was married to Elizabeth “Betty” Draper and has three children with her, but his history of infidelity, along with his revelations to her about his past, led to her announcing at the end of Season 3, which was December 1963, she intended to divorce him.[6][20] At the beginning of Season 4, which was December 31, 1964 in the show’s timeline it was revealed that she did divorce Don and is currently married to Henry Francis, but still lives in the same house she had with Don. Draper’s real name is Richard[21][22] Whitman: he assumed the identity of Don Draper during the Korean War after the death of his Lieutenant, taking his name to escape from his undesirable past.[23]

  1. Actually that is not an oil painting. I painted it with Acrylics, using only a pallette knife to apply the paint. The second and third seasons, they had me create a giclée to save on shipping charges. So it’s only in the first season that you can see the sheen and texture of the work. BTW, I am now selling signed full-sized giclées of the painting, on canvas.
