victorian artists


From the 1890s through the 1910s Irene Gibson (his wife), Nancy Astor, Baroness Phyllis Brand and Nora Phipps were the four Langhorne sisters who inspired many of Charles Dana Gibson’s drawings, encapsulating the American ideal of beauty at the time: the Gibson Girl.

“Ghosts are real; this much I know. There are things that tie them to a place, very much like they do to us. Some remain tethered to a patch of land, a time and date, the spilling of blood, a terrible crime… There are others…others that hold onto an emotion, a drive, loss, revenge, or love. Those, they never go away.”
