A beautiful and delicately rendered oil on canvas of a pensive flapper girl in a bright flowered sun dress by the noted female artist and illustrator Edna Crompton.

This was presumably used as cover art for The Redbook Magazine, as I acquired another similar themed work by the artist which was used as the cover for the February 1925 volume. The artist also worked prolifically creating calendar art glamour images throughout the 1920s.
