Charles Dana Gibson (1867-1944) was a brilliant American illustrator whose satires appeared frequently in magazines such as LIFE, THE CENTURY and HARPERS WEEKLY. Through his most popular creation, 'The Gibson Girl', he wittily commented on the social life of his times. This Edwardian beauty rapidly became a cult figure, exploited by the commercial world. The Doulton Seriesware illustrations are taken from Gibson's books. The series was in production from 1901 to 1915. This 10 1/2" plate from A Widow and her Friends is number 22 of 24 and titled: SHE GOES TO THE FANCY DRESS BALL AS "JULIET". Excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs!
