Collier's Magazine Cover October 1924


From the estate of legendary jazz-age Ziegfeld Follies photographer Alfred Cheney Johnston comes this sensational pastel by noted American illustrator Penrhyn Stanlaws. Inscribed "To Cheney from Penrhyn Stanlaws." This is a fabulous offering, created in the then popular "Fadeaway Girl" style invented by Coles Phillips, and features a stylish 1920s flapper girl in a cloche hat admiring her abundant beauty in a compact mirror. This was created as the cover for the October 4, 1924 issue of Collier's magazine, and later inscribed and gifted to Johnston.
