A LIFE Magazine "James Montgomery Flagg" Gallery

James Montgomery Flagg (1877-1960 ) sold his first illustration to LIFE at the age of 7. He continued to work for LIFE for twenty years. His humor and satire were his forte. He worked rapidly and created many portraits and caricatures. He greatly admired women which led him to create the Flagg Girls. They were tall, wide shouldered beauties with a face as "symmetrical as a Greek vase. After an active productive life he died in virtual obscurity.
