Howard Chandler Christy

No. WP-107
I Want You for The Navy
Howard Chandler Christy followed the more traditional artist, Charles Dana Gibson, who was known for his illustrations of the "Gibson Girl," always portrayed in a formal dress and hairstyle. The "Christy Girl," by way of contrast, was much more casual. In this case, the girl has a sultry, sexy "come hither" look. What young red-blooded American male could resist joining the Navy with a poster like this? It was not just that Christy was changing the way femininity was portrayed; he was capturing the changing spirit of independence in the American woman who was fighting for and would soon achieve equality in the right to vote.
