Ruth Eastman

Ruth Eastman did her best work, I believe, on the covers of the humor magazine Judge. Her images of "Flappers" have a spontaneity and graphic appeal that are a great contrast to her more restrained work for mainstream woman's magazines. A very prolific but largely forgotten illustrator. Like Vernon Grant She is not even mentioned in the 1984 book "The Illustrator in America". I'm not sure if they made it into the current edition. Hopefully we can give Her the recognition She deserves here. I'll post more in the future.
