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.

Giclée (French for “to spray”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed onto the paper’s surface creating natural color transitions. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is a great option for framing with its smooth, acid free surface.
