Gibson Girls

Morning All 🙂

This week our theme is ‘Gibson Girls’ …….

The Gibson Girl began appearing in the 1890s and was the personification of the feminine ideal of beauty portrayed by the satirical pen-and-ink illustrations of illustrator Charles Dana Gibson during a 20-year period that spanned the late nineteenth and early twentieth century in the United States. The artist saw his creation as representing the composite of “thousands of American girls.” (Wikipedia)……

This week is a challenge I must admit. Click on the picture above for more info on The Renaissance. When I looked into what the Renaissance I was surprised how many artists it encompassed. There’s plenty of inspiration around.

I hope my postcard will also inspire you
