    Description

    Howard Chandler Christy Portrait of Congressman Hornor Painting Original Art (1945) An immense, near-life-size painting from the artist who succeeded Charles Dana Gibson as a celebrated glamour artist: From the Gibson Girl image, there sprang the equally famous Christy Girl. Christy, a colorful and adventurous war correspondent-illustrator, became a busy celebrity portraitist during the 1920s. Commissioned to deliver a memorial portrait of West Virginia Congressman Lynn Sedwick Hornor (1874-1933), Christy pictured the dignitary in a prime of youthful middle age, accompanied by a fine hound, seen (at lower right) lapping water from a fountain. An accompanying envelope contains obituary notices on Hornor. Oils on stretched canvas. Image area, 40" x 55". Light paint damage at center. Excellent condition.
