Winged LIFE Entrance

A CHARLES DANA GIBSON "LIFE Magazine" Gallery



CHARLES DANA GIBSON (1867-1944) John Ames Mitchell who bought Gibson's first drawing when Gibson was 7 years old said that he "detected beneath the outer badness of these drawings peculiarities rarely discovered in the efforts of a beginner...his faults were good, able-bodied faults that held their heads up and looked you in the eye. No dodging of the difficult points, no tricks, no uncertainty, no slurring of outlines...there was always courage and honesty in whatever he undertook." He was the president of Society of Illustrators in the teens. During WWI he headed a government agency that produced war posters. He developed the beautiful ever popular Gibson girl and Gibson man.
