Charles Dana Gibson

(1867-1944) Charles Dana Gibson was born in Roxbury, Massachusetts and was one of the best known of the turn-of-the-century illustrators. His drawings of the beautiful, high society woman--the "Gibson Girl," are perhaps the most recognizable images of the time. He was a master of pen and ink and did much of his work for Life, and CollierÕs magazines.
