Men love her, women want to be her

11"x 14"
Watercolor on paper

Do you guys know what a Gibson girl is? They were the pin-up girls of their day, illustrated by Charles Dana Gibson in the 1890's and early 1900's. The Gibson girl was the epitome of beauty in her day, tall and slender, always perfectly dressed, and at ease in any situation. She was intelligent and beloved by all men, (although she often didn't have any need for them.)

I have always been fascinated by Gibson's drawings, and can't resist, whenever possible, putting them into paper doll form.

You can purchase postcards, greeting cards, or small matted prints of this piece in my Red Bubble Shop. More images, sizes and products coming soon!
