Beautiful Painting of a Woman from a Vintage 1919 Shampoo Advertisement
Today’s image is from a 1919 issue of the Delineator Magazine – it is a lovely watercolor painting of a woman brushing her long, red hair in the mirror. It’s from an ad for “Watkins Mulsified Cocoanut (sic) Oil for Shampooing”. It was painted by Will Grefe, who was a prolific illustrator and commercial artist that lived from 1875-1957. Supposedly his model for the Watkins ads (he had several) was his wife Margaret Moore. Gorgeous, wasn’t she??
Back in 1919, by the way, this was considered “scantily clad”. Heh. Wow.
