Feel free to ask questions if you need more info. Charles Allan Gilbert (September 3, 1873 April 20, 1929), better known as C.Allan Gilbert , was a prominent American. He is especially remembered for a widely published drawing a memento mori. The drawing employs a double image or visual pun. In which the scene of a woman admiring herself in a mirror, when viewed from a distance, appears to be a human skull. The title is also a pun, as this type of dressing-table used to be called a vanity. It is less widely known that Gilbert was an early contributor to animation. Artist (or camoufleur) for the U. Gilbert was the youngest of the three sons of Charles Edwin Gilbert and Virginia Ewing Crane. As a child, he was an invalid (the circumstances of which are unclear), with the result that he often made drawings for self-amusement (Leonard 1913). At age sixteen, he began to study art with Charles Noel Flagg, the official portrait painter for the State of Connecticut.
Who had also founded the Connecticut League of Art Students. In 1892, he enrolled at the Art Students League of New York, where he remained for two years.In 1894, he moved to France for a year, where he studied with Jean-Paul Laurens. At the Academie Julien in Paris (New York Times 1913). Returning from Paris, Gilbert settled in New York, where he embarked on an active career as an illustrator of books, magazines, posters and calendars.
His illustrations were frequently published in Scribner's. It was earlier, while he was still a student at the Art Students' League, that he completed All Is Vanity , the drawing that became popular when it was initially published in Life. In the course of his artistic career, Gilbert illustrated a large number of books, among them H. The Soul of a Bishop (1917), Gouverneur Morris.His Daughter (1919), Edith Wharton. S The Age of Innocence (1920), and Booth Tarkington. He also published collections of his own drawings, including Overheard in the Whittington Family , Women of Fiction , All is Vanity , The Honeymoon , A Message from Mars , and In Beauty's Realm.
