Edward Eggleston
Milady Beautiful

1920s

$15,000

About

This is an enchanting oil on canvas painting by artist and illustrator Edward Eggleston. A beguiling Jazz Age fantasy image, this portrait features a rosy cheeked flapper girl draped in a floral piano shawl. Seated in an arched window, she takes in the moonlit sky. A skillfully rendered piece, Eggleston employed heavy impasto in his background work on the canvas to truly capture the textures and actual feel of an exotic locale stucco wall. This piece was published as calendar art for the Gerlach Barklow Co. under the title "Milady Beautiful". A vintage calendar print is included in the sale. This has been signed by the artist in the lower left corner of the image. The painting is in fine archived condition and displays only minor surface wear along the bottom of the image. Painting is housed in it's original beautifully carved wood gesso frame with mesmerizing detail. This illustration comes from the collection of esteemed illustration art collector Norman Platnick. Framed dimensions: 29.25" x 35.5" Image dimensions: 21.25" x 27"
