a look at the paintings from the Mad Men TV series

MadMen – Coopers Office Art

BertramBertCooper (Robert Morse): The somewhat eccentric senior partner at Sterling Cooper. He leaves the day-to-day running of the firm to Sterling and Draper, but is keenly aware of the firm’s operations. Like many of his executives, Bertram is a Republican. He is fascinated by Japanese culture, requiring everybody including clients and his sister (a shareholder) to remove their shoes before walking into his office (which is decorated with Japanese art). He is a fan of the writings of Ayn Rand and implies he knows her personally. Among his eccentricities, Bert frequently walks through the offices in his socks and intensely dislikes gum and smoking (an oddity for the time, especially considering Lucky Strike cigarettes is a major client). He owns a ranch in Montana and is a widower with no children. Don approaches him about buying back the agency at the end of the third season, which evolves into them forming their own.

    Golly, this piece, the man in blue, is so gorgeous. Would you please try to get a better shot of it? I’d also appreciate the artist’s name and/or the name of the piece.

    Thanks for the site. MB

  2. Let’s see what all gets covered under a motor insurance -. While driving, the owner is also responsible for the security of the fellow passengers. At this time this has to be understood that the sum of insurance plan differ from time to time simply because insurance providers also have to abide by the state insurance plan legal guidelines.

  3. It is possible to easily discover agents by
    going by way of the Yellow Pages. Risk life insurance
    can be structured in two basic ways, either as whole life insurance or as term
    insurance. The COBRA law entitles you to stay in your former employer’s health insurance plan for up to 18 months
