    The Gibson Girl, the first popular image of the American woman, was created by Charles Dana Gibson, one of the nation's greatest illustrators, during the "Golden Age" of illustration, when America's national magazines, such as Life and Collier's, influenced every aspect of American culture. This video, produced by Gibson's great-grandson, explores the origins of the Gibson Girl, with an in-depth look at her creator and his life's work. The documentary features numerous pen and ink drawings, interviews with family members and illustration experts, plus rare archival footage of Gibson.
