1 "This Is the Draped Dress" Matted Best & Co. Ad Woman's Home Companion 1922
Woman's Home Companion Magazine 1922 Very Good 
I am not usually attracted to most of the matted and/or framed advertising available, but this one caught my eye. The monotone art is not only elegant, but evocative of the Jazz Age -- the world of Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald and the artistic women of the Left Bank. As indicated on the reverse side, the image comes from the Picture Section of Woman's Home Companion magazine July, 1922. Both it and its mat are very clean. The art is the creation of John La Gatta (1894-1977), an illustrator best remembered for his work featuring women. The overall size with mat is 12"x13" while the image itself is 9"x9-3/4"
