The Story: With a determined character and a direct gaze, this young Gibson Girl is a sign of changing times. The skirt length is heightened and the red ribbons and bows on her hat and shoes pop off her white dress. The unknown artist's portrait of an unknown   girl reminds us of Mary Pickford, a Canadian-American motion picture actress popular in between 1910 and1930. There's something special about this small painting – a lovely accent to any room.
