Response to fade away girls

Since Coles Phillips introduced "fade-away girls" in 1908 and died in 1927, most of his illustrations predate Art Deco.

You can find a nice biography of Coles Phillips at http://www.nowtranslations.com/cp.htm

Diana Fallacara sells Coles Phillips prints (among many others). Her gallery features many fade-away girls, which you can view in detail. Visit http://www.tias.com/stores/hfisherbab/coles/1.html
