Cover of Saturday Evening Post magazine (Easter edition), April 1905.

This is one of Leyendecker's first Easter covers for the Saturday Evening Post. He was to complete dozens more, often applying his most imaginative ideas to that season. Here, he has surrounded the figure with a tracery of wispy black lines, which serve to soften the edges and simultaneously give them more graphic emphasis. Much of this power is lost in the magazine reproduction, which employed only two colors of ink.
