“Beauty’s Charms” was found on an advertising calendar dated 1919 for The Best Mfg. Co., New Haven, Conn. It can be identified as the work of famed artist/photographer Beatrice Tonnesen (1871 – 1958), a major contributor of calendar art from about 1900 – 1930, during the Golden Age of Illustration. The dress and the model are seen in other works contained in archives of Tonnesen’s work, and this image is shown hanging in Tonnesen’s Chicago studio in a photo dated 1920. – Lois Emerson
