Rolf Armstrong
A Blue Eyed Beauty

c. 1930


An unpublished original pastel by Rolf Armstrong of model Dea Jamel Smith, a pretty young dancer from Julliard who Armstrong worked with extensively during the 1920s and early 1930s as she had the face and physique of the Roaring Twenties and the Jazz Age. This work was never published, we acquired it from the model's descendants. Armstrong really excelled at these pastel close-up portraits, this is a lovely and fresh to the market example that captures the allure of the flapper girl effortlessly with a blue eyed flirty smile. Sight Size 9" x 12" Framed 19 1/2" x 24"
