John Held, Jr.: Flapper in Steel

This painted steel cut-out figure of a dancing flapper is no-doubt based on a drawing by John Held, Jr. Over six feet tall, it's a bit of an unusual piece and did not find a buyer last year at Illustration House.

Note:  John Held, Jr. was insanely popular in the 1920's. So why not check out my posts about him?
