Puzzle (750pc) Vogue : Winter Splendor
Capturing the holiday spirit is Helen Dryden’s December 1920 Vogue cover, which depicts a smartly dressed woman happily observing through her red-curtained window the arrival, in the snow, of a gift-bearing friend.
It also manages to highlight the cover girl’s baubles, which is in keeping with the magazine’s focus on “a distinct new fashion in jewellery”—one that Dryden shared. In a 1929 newspaper interview, the artist admitted to having a passion for imitation jewelry. “I simply can’t resist it. Nor can any other woman,” she declared. “It is an inherent part of femininity to adorn ourselves.”
