Stockton Mulford created this compelling oil on canvas illustration of a daring aviatrix for the April, 1924 issue of Everybody’s Magazine. The art accompanied the interior story The Long Call, a Canadian Northwest rescue adventure story by Kathrene and Robert Pinkerton that centered on a fictional embodiment of the early 20th century independent woman. The story of Peggy Thorpe, who at age eight scandalized the family by deciding to wear overalls, at eighteen turned “her untamable determination and the charm of a vibrant personality to the upbuilding of the family fortune” and then to the drama of the skies. In deep shadowy blue tones, the artwork captures the devil-may-care spirit of the 1920s flapper, and the tremendous enthusiasm for flight in the machine age. This technically brilliant painting by the well-listed New York area pulp illustrator comes with a bound edition of Everybody’s Magazine that shows the published image, above a caption reading “A low whistle directed them to the airplane, and the supplies were stowed in the fuselage.” The painting retains its original gold painted wood antique frame.
