An allegorical angelic scene by noted American fine artist, muralist, and illustrator Charles Allen Winter titled "Liberty Unchained." Our research leads us to believe this was an interior magazine illustration for Cosmopolitan, which ran a series of spiritually relevant writings by Roycroft founder and early twentieth century philosopher Elbert Hubbard under the title "Little Sermons"--all illustrated by Winter. Several of Winter's "Sermons" paintings were then reproduced in Hubbard's own publication "The Fra." From the estate of Charles Martignette, the sadly departed author of the "The Great American Pin-Up."
