    Charles Dana Gibson: Original Signed "Gibson Girl" Sketch . Illustrator Charles Dana Gibson (1867-1944) created an American icon of enduring popularity with the creation of the Gibson Girl around 1890. His sketches appeared primarily in Life magazine, but also in Harper's Weekly, Collier's, and Scribner's. This 20" x 14" artwork is mounted on a thin board and is titled "Serious Business. A young Lawyer arguing his first important case." It is signed in the image "C. D. Gibson A.T.P." There are some pencil notations on the bottom edge and some loss at the top (not affecting image), as well as adhered remnants of mat board around the border. The title also appears in the lower right corner of the image. Properly matted and framed, this sketch will present stunningly.
