The Art of Pierangelo Boog: Charles Dana Gibson - *The Gibson Girl* - Pen and Ink works of his best

The Gibson Girl was known as the century's first pin up.  First sketched by Charles Dana Gibson in 1902, this imaginary woman was to represent the ideal woman.  She  became known as the liberated young woman with the characteristic upswept hairdo.  Created using a combination  of the Marcel wave and postiche, the Gibson Girl look was to last a quarter of a century.
