Gently used

This vintage print framed in 1975 bears wear consistent with vintage items. The frame bears light scratching but the print, faded from original printing, is true to Tradesy photos pictured. There is a slight crack in the upper right corner of glass; to slight for photographs -- and it neither affects the beauty nor integrity of the print or frame. Note: The white lateral line seen in photo is simply a reflection, the original is clear.


***A Great Additional Discount Is Available!!---Click on my Name Directly Above ( "Listed by...") to learn about my Multi-Sale Discount Offer in my Closet Profile**** For one who can appreciate the glamour of the burgeoning 1920's Jazz Age, this lovely vintage framed print produced in 1975 by Crown Publishers, of a June 1, 1919 Vogue magazine cover designed by Helen Dryden (pictured) is perfect. Entitled "Summer Fashions", a woman ornately and elegantly jeweled relaxes at the shore in a Lily crowned sunhat with a parasol. *** Helen Dryden, described by The New York Times as the highest paid 'woman' artist at the time, was successful artist and industrial designer but passed away in relative poverty. Born in 1887, in Baltimore and raised in Philadelphia in her early years, she showed unusual artistic ability, designing and selling clothes for paper dolls. Eventually she sold a set of her paper dolls and dresses to a newspaper for use in its fashion section, leading to a position as illustrator for fashion articles in Philadelphia newspapers. She was largely self-trained, describing her works as "a combination of things I like, in the way I want to do them." Her artistic education consisted of four years of training in landscape painting under Hugh Breckinridge and one summer school session at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. She had no real interest in landscape Painting and focused on fashion design and illustration. Moving to New York in 1909, she spent a year trying to interest fashion magazines in her drawings. None, however, showed any interest in her work and many were harsh with criticism. Dryden was particularly disappointed in her rejection by Vogue. Less than a year later, however, Conde' Nast Publications assumed management of Vogue and set out to make changes. Upon seeing Dryden's drawings, they directed the fashion editor to contact her immediately. The result was a Vogue contract that led to a 13-year collaboration (1909--1922) during which she produced many fashion illustrations and magazine covers. Her "essentially romantic style produced some of the most appealing, yet fantastical images onVogue covers, frequently depicting imagined rather than realistic representations of dress." She also illustrated other Cond Nast titles, including Vanity Fair and House and Garden. In 1914, Dryden launched a successful career as a costume designer, designing scenery and some of the costumes for several other stage plays including Claire de Lune starring Lionel and Ethel Barrymore. In this case, her designs were given equal credit for the play's success. After the 1925 Paris Exposition Internationale des Arts De'coratifs et Industriels Modernes (International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts), Dryden focused on industrial design creating tableware, lamps, and other housewares, for the Revere Corporation. She had a highly compensated job with the Dura Company until the stock market crash of 1929 at which point she was replaced. Dryden then worked for Studebaker from 1934 to 1937, reportedly earning $100,000 per year. Her work on the interior of the 1936 Studebaker Dictator and President ( See pictured) established Helen Dryden as an important twentieth-century industrial designer. The press marveled that a woman had attained this eminence in mechanical engineering. She was considered "one of the top industrial designers and one of the few women in the automotive field. But by 1956 Dryden was living in a $10-a-week hotel room paid for by the city's Welfare Department.
