    Gwen Fremlin - Original Magazine Story Illustration (c.1955). As a prolific and proficient female illustrator, Gwen Fremlin had a keen insight into the women and fashions of the era. Her work appeared in many of the national periodicals, with this painting serving as a fine example. Published in the September, 1950 issue of Woman's Home Companion as a two-page illustration, it accompanied the story titled, Harry You're Wonderful! by Eleanor Shaler. It carried the following caption: "'Darling!' Sybil hurtled out the elevator and threw herself at Althea. 'Let's go,' Althea said urgently. Everyone was looking at them." Rendered in gouache on board, it measures 22 x 30, and is signed lower right. Two magazine pages showing the published version are included.
