J.C. Leyendecker — Saturday Evening Post — May 23, 1931

I love the colors and the patterning in the background design and the fabric of the dress, a cross between the feeling of an illuminated manuscript and a modern 1930s, complete with the woman's expressive face and stylized "decorum."

Some of my top-most favorite illustrations of all time are when Leyendecker staged scenes in pre-modern eras. As you say they were a cross between Leyendecker's time and Renaissance times.
