Henry Raleigh (1880-1944)

Man visiting half-dressed woman.

Magazine story illustration: “Better Wife”, Hearst’s International, 1922;

Brown ink and watercolor, 14.5 x 15.5" signed, dated '22.

It would have been shocking for a 1922 audience to see a man visiting a half-dressed woman in her boudoir.

Condition: Very good overall: the occasional gouging and scraping was apparently intended by the artist. Archivally matted, but not framed.
