Violet c1907 by American Illustrator Hamilton King (1871 – 1941); prominent illustrator known for the Hamilton King Girls of the early 20th century.

This is a beautiful Edwardian Era (1901 – 1910) print illustration of an attractive young lady wearing the fashion of the day with a very large light blue Mushroom hat resting on her auburn colored hair.

On the large brim of the hat are violet flowers that have been placed over the light blue scarf that is covering the hat and draped down the front of her coat.

She has her folded hands that are placed high up her chest, just underneath her chin in a white fur muff, which contrast nicely with her thick black hip high winter coat; and on the folded area of her right arm there is an additional bouquet of violet flowers with green leaves.

Beneath her coat is an outline of a striped white, red, green and blue patterned dressed which completes this half figure illustration of a young lady.

This is a remastered digital art old masters reproduction of a public domain image that is available as a canvas print online.

Hamilton king was a prominent illustrator of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, who created attractive illustrations of young ladies for magazine covers, sheet music, calendars, post cards and cigarette cards – most notably for Turkish Trophies Cigarettes with his Hamilton King Girls Series; which depicted young ladies in period gowns to playing sports, which were issued in 6 different sets (T7 through T7-6).

He also created illustrations of the Coca-Cola Girls from 1910 to 1913; which graced all of the products produced by the brand at that time.
