A gouache painting of an elegant flapper, executed in vivid red and green hues, by Jane E. Messick for the Christmas, 1926 issue of the "Echo" magazine published by the prestigious Shortridge High School in Indianapolis, Indiana. Befitting the holiday theme, this figure is depicted with holly leaves for hair -- closely fitting her head like a 1920's bathing cap -- with a stained glass rose window serving as an aureole around her head. This painting is an iconic holiday image from the dawn of the Art Deco period.
