"The Brinkley Girl" Jig-Saw Puzzle

jigsaw puzzle

Nell Brinkley followed in the footsteps of Charles Dana Gibson with the popularity of her artistic contribution, The Brinkley Girl. Brinkley's drawings and journal illustrations featured looser imagery than Gibson's more formal portraits, and showcased such celebrities as Evelyn Nesbitt and other women of the so-called flapper era. Later in her life Brinkley published comics or comic puzzles such as this printed newspaper supplement from 1933. The large-eyed and frilly Brinkley Girl probably felt old fashioned in 1933. Brinkley's early journalistic style was completely eclipsed by photography. Her name is far less recognizeable than Gibson's.
