It really is too cold out to feature anything but a cute girl looking fabulous despite the cold weather. And nobody did cute girls better than Earl Christy.
I can’t believe I’ve never mentioned Christy here before, because I’m pretty sure I’ve shown some of the illustrations he did of sporty college girls in the 1910s and early 1920s. You can find his work on postcards, as magazine illustrations and on the covers of novels for girls and young women. His work remained popular through the 1930s, and the great majority of it was of pretty women. Interestingly, he never married, and lived his entire adult life with a sister or two.
