An early watercolor on illustration board portrait painting by beloved American illustrator James Montgomery Flagg which appeared as the cover of the February 7, 1915 Sunday Magazine of the Minneapolis Journal. With the development in color lithography technologies in the early 20th century, many American newspapers published images like this as full page art supplements, to be framed and displayed in homes. Painting is silk matted and framed under glass in a gold, hand carved basswood gallery frame that compliments the artwork beautifully.
