Charles Allan Gilbert
Standing Woman



Woman standing in a gown. Signed and dated lower left. Charles Allan Gilbert chose art as a career after discovering his talent while sketching during a childhood as invalid. Following training at the Art Students League, he went to Paris while his teachers were Constant and Laurens. He returned to the U.S to begin a very successful illustration career, with a special aptitude for the portrayal of beautiful young women. Their portraits were included in several gift books and published as prints and postcards. Among his books and portfolios were In Beauty's Realm, A Portfolio of Heads, Cameo Heads, Heads in Color, and Women of Fiction. He also illustrated books and famous actresses, including impersonator Olda Nethersole, and Julia Marlow in Barbara Frietchie, and Maude Adams in The Little Minister. His many magazine appearances included The Ladies' Home Journal, Vogue, Life, Woman's Home Companion, Scribner's Magazine, and Vanity Fair. Gilbert also invented and patented a process of combining animated drawing with live actors for motion pictures.
