This humorous watercolor by famed American Illustrator, James Montgomery Flagg, attests to the fraternity and friendship that existed between peers during the Golden Age of Illustration.

Clive evidently had grown tired of the illustration game specifically, tired of painting woman. Threatening to leave it all behind and become a southwestern landscape painter, Flagg perfectly lampooned Clive in this painting.

Flagg was an amazingly prolific illustrator and is best known for his WWI poster artwork and for creating the resonating famed image of our dear old Uncle Sam.
