Charles Dana Gibson (1867-1944) His works appeared in all major New York publications, Harper's Weekly, Scribners and Collier's. He also illustrated many books and short stories. He created the "Gibson Girl" in 1890. She reassured Americans that an American woman could be desirable, worthy, interesting and no less noble than her European rivals. The Gibson Girl was an independent spirit. She was gallant, courageous, self-reliant and desirable without being sexy. She made Gibson a wealthy man. He became the editor and eventual owner of Life after the death of Mitchell in 1918. The popularity of the Gibson Girl faded after World War I, and Gibson took to working with oils for his own pleasure.
