Beloved American illustrator Howard Chandler Christy (1873 – 1952) was synonymous with his iconic Christy Girl, a beautiful, independent woman whose 6,000 images were featured in numerous national magazines and patriotic posters. Originally illustrating Spanish-American war scenes directly from the battlefield, Christy became a portraitist when he came home. He painted socialites, actors and presidents, completing a staggering 30 works in a single year. Christy, admired for his smooth, spontaneous brushwork, also painted allegories, historical scenes, and landscapes.
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper is acid free with a smooth surface.
