An inventive mixed medium early work by Edwin Georgi used as narrative story art for an 1930s issue of the Woman's Home Companion. A linear and modernist rendering of women's disembodied heads that contrasts the Art Deco era ideal of make-up enhanced feminine beauty with classic Greek porcelain statuary. A clever and stylized early work by one of our favorite American illustrators, Edwin Georgi.
