An important and rare original cover illustration for Vogue Magazine by Eduardo Benito who did his first cover for Vogue in November 1921 . Along with George LePape , Helen Dryden , and George Plank, Benito was a frequent cover contributor and really came into his own during the late 1920's and helped define the Jazz Age sophisticated angular geometric look.

A pale and wispy nymph steps through a stylized "V." Artword is beautifully matted and framed and in fine condition as seen. Pictured on page 199 of The Art Of Vogue Covers 1909-1940 by William Packer, where the artist is referenced and discussed at length with dozens of his magazine covers illustrated.
