The drawings of American society by Charles Dana Gibson (1867-1944) defined the age contemporaneously and retrospectively from the 1890s through the early 1900s. His images of women, in particular, were so influential on the development of the American feminine style that the term “Gibson Girls” became part of the lexicon.
