    Description

    Albert Beck Wenzell (1864-1917) Original Story Illustration (c.1897). One of the most renowned illustrators of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Albert Wenzell is remembered for his striking portrayals of high society. Much of his work is filled with rich colors and the fashions of the period: a glimpse of the lives of the sophisticated and affluent at the turn of the century. Wenzell's paintings were published in the leading magazines of the day, among them Harper's Monthly, The Century, and The Saturday Evening Post. This painting was a story illustration which saw publication in one of the magazines of the period. It is rendered in watercolor on board, framed (32 x 38), with an approximate sight size of 27 x 33, and is signed lower right.
