About this Item

Comes in a closed clear plastic slipcase. Lightly rubbed. 16 1/2 x 10 1/2. Print of woman in traditional 1905 dress. "Howard Chandler Christy (January 10, 1873 - March 3, 1952) was an American artist and illustrator famous for the "Christy Girl", similar to a "Gibson Girl". He was born in Morgan County and attended early school in Duncan Falls, Ohio. He then studied in New York at the National Academy and the Art Students League under William Merritt Chase.He first attracted attention with his illustrations of the Spanish-American War, published in Scribner's and Harper's magazines and in Collier's Weekly, gaining especial prominence with the series, "Men of the Army and Navy," and a portrait of Colonel Roosevelt. He was best known, however, for his charming illustrations of the works of such authors as Richard Harding Davis, and he created a picturesque and romantic type of society women peculiarly his own. His work is characterized by great facility, a dashing but not exaggerated style and a strong sense of values. Together with fellow artists Harrison Fisher and Neysa McMein he constituted the Motion Picture Classic magazine's, "Fame and Fortune" contest jury of 1921-22, who discovered the It-girl, Clara Bow.[1] In 1940, he painted the Scene at the Signing of the Constitution of the United States, which was installed in the House of Representatives wing in the United States Capitol. Some of his work, newly cleaned, is on display at the site of the defunct but legendary New York City restaurant Café des Artistes, in 2011 occupied by a restaurant called The Leopard at des Artistes.[2] They include six panels of wood nymphs and paintings such as The Parrot Girl, The Swing Girl, Ponce De Leon, Fall, Spring and the Fountain of Youth.[3] Another Christy painting has been displayed at the Gettysburg Museum and Visitor Center. The Zanesville Museum of Art in Zanesville, Ohio, has on permanent display Christy's "Portrait of Dorothy Barton Thomas," with other Christy posters, prints and paintings in their collection. Christy died on March 3, 1952." -WikipediaKeywords: HOWARD CHANDLER CHRISTY PRINT ART POSTER. Bookseller Inventory # 1792482
