Abstract:

Angling is a method of fishing by means of using an angle or fish hook. The hook itself can be dressed with lures or bait to attract the fish. F. Earl Christy (1883-1961) was an illustrator whose early works glorified the society college girl. After the college girl craze ran its course, he painted more mature men and women, movie stars, and political figures in his romantically idealized style. These three items show women with fishing poles. One of the postcard illustration's artwork is by F. Earl Christy.
