John Held, Jr., evolved his signature style of thin-lined drawing and vibrant color to fashion definitive Jazz Age images such as this flapper, flanked by a trombonist and a saxophonist. Her slim, stylish figure and active silhouette typify the pleasure-seeking, revolutionary American beauty of the 1920s. Held’s drawings graced the pages and covers of McClure’s, Judge, Life, and the New Yorker. He also created costume and set designs for musical productions, illustrated books, and comic strips including Oh! Margy, Joe Prep, and Rah Rah Rosalie.
