About the artist
Harriet Meserole, likely born in the 1890s in the USA, started her journey as an illustrator with Vogue around 1916-1918. Meserole was a steady fixture in the magazine during the twenties, gracing both the cover and the pages within. Her unique style, a charming blend of controlled simplicity and refined elegance, emerged in the aftermath of the Art Nouveau period. By the mid-20s, Meserole had carved out her graphic identity. At times, she wasn't shy to add a harsh, edgy, and bold twist to her work.
