Price: $160.00
Charles Dana Gibson - American 1867-1944 In Victorian times, illustrators for popular magazines had as much influence on people as movies and television do today. Just as we now look for fashion ideas and moral inspiration from celebrities, actors or musicians, so Americans of the 1890''s and first two decades of the past century found their hopes and ideals expressed in the pen-and-ink drawings of Charles Dana Gibson. The Gibson Girl was ''taller than other women currently seen in the pages of magazines. Infinitely more spirited and independent, yet altogether feminine. She appeared in a stiff shirtwaist, her soft hair piled into a chignon, topped by a big plumed hat. Her flowing skirt was hiked up in back with just a hint of a bustle. She was poised and patrician. Though always well bred, there often lurked a flash of mischief in her eyes.'' The flash of mischief was not lost on readers. It was a characteristic they loved that seemed to exemplify the American spirit of resourcefulness, adventurousness, and liberation from European traditions. Here Gibson shows us the masculine side of the equation - Two men, standing. First Shade: There''s one good thing about this place. Second Shade: What''s that?, ''We can smoke''.
