      HOWARD CHANDLER CHRISTY.
      Did you see the way he looked at me? An elegant story illustration for an unidentified publication featuring a woman just returned from an event, her lavish evening coat tossed casually across her chair, and addressing her maid. Ink and wash on board, with areas heightened in white. 762x1016 mm; 30x40 inches. Signed in full and dated 1922 in lower right image. Edges heavily chipped (not affecting image), age-toning and pinholes in margins, two pieces of tape in outer margins.
