Christy, Howard Chandler (1873-1952) American illustrator and portraitist, famous for his "Christy Girls" and World War I posters.

Illustration signed and dedicated ("Howard Chandler Christy"). One page, 7¾ x 8¾", n.p., 1929. Pencil on cream paper (probably trimmed from letterhead) mounted on paperboard. Minor smudging, otherwise fine.

A very nice, obviously unique piece from one of the most recognized illustrators of the 20th century. One of Christy's girls (with a lovely bob) watches over the inscription to Miss Ida Corey "with best wishes".
Estimated Value $200 - 250.

Realized $299
