The Smoking: Lucky Strike Cigarette

About the First Artwork
Beloved American illustrator Howard Chandler Christy (1873 – 1952) was synonymous with his iconic Christy Girl, a beautiful, independent woman whose 6,000 images were featured in numerous national magazines and patriotic posters. Originally illustrating Spanish-American war scenes directly from the battlefield, Christy became a portraitist when he came home. He painted socialites, actors and presidents, completing a staggering 30 works in a single year. Christy, admired for his smooth, spontaneous brushwork, also painted allegories, historical scenes, and landscapes.
This art print was created using a sophisticated digital printer. The Giclee printing process delivers a fine stream of archival ink on archival paper, resulting in vivid, pure color and exceptional detail that is suitable for museum or gallery display.
