We end here - for now - with an artist mostly forgotten now, except by people who obsessively study old New Yorkers. John Held Jr. had two styles; one was an angular, almost abstract style he used for the foibles and glories of Flaming Youth, Flappers, and other 20s phenomenon; the other was the style you see above. It was a satire on sentimental old 19th engravings.

In his time, this was retro.
