Demure Flapper With Bobbed Hair • Grapefruit Moon Gallery
A delightful pastel by Pearl L. Hill. This dates from the 1920's and was presumably used as a cover for a period woman's magazine (likely Modern Priscilla). A demure yet playfully-posed, modernist, roaring 20s flapper girl with short bobbed hair strikes a winning pose in this large, nicely matted and framed illustration. Hill created seven cover paintings in the early 1920's for the prestigious "Saturday Evening Post." Her illustrations modernized the American woman in glamorous art deco fashion.
