A whimsical snow scene pastel illustration by Rolf Armstrong which initially appeared as the cover for College Humor in December of 1929. This image was slightly altered by Armstrong and appeared again in 1936 as a Brown & Bigelow Calendar titled "The Call of the North." The pastel was dedicated to Stan Fenelle another Brown & Bigelow artist by Armstrong and is a new to the market Saint Paul, Minnesota estate find. Work is matted and framed in a period art deco era Newcomb-Macklin antique gold carved frame. Really a wonderful example of the Armstrong Calendar Girl.
