Description: 

This unknown figure stands confidently, with hands on hips, directing her gaze to the right with a slightly bemused smile. The model is attired in a dark jacket, embellished with light colored scroll work on the long cuffs, pockets and fur lined collar of the garment. Her simple "V" necked dark dress, is accentuated with a double looped string of pearls. This model has the iconic 1920’s bobbed haircut, that is partially covered by a wide brimmed dark hat. The light background ensures the figure, as she is dressed, has complete prominence. The work is signed in the lower left hand with the following text "Hixon Studio K.C. MO." The original print was by Orval Hixon
