Gibson Girls: the early years
I am in love with the early 1900s illustrations and commentary of Charles Dana Gibson. Some of his more recognizable and famous illustrations are of the “Gibson Girls.” I recently found a published collection of his art work at a local thrift shop and thoroughly enjoy flipping through the pages and narratives of his characters. The captions are priceless.
The portrayals make me smile so big! Gibson has drawn upon some great themes, especially of the time, much more than what I have displayed here. His art actually reminds me of a could-be scene from an F. Scott Fitzgerald tale.
I hope they sent a smile your way as well!
