VA-Q5C The Gibson Girl

Marker text: THE GIBSON GIRL

Here stood the residence in which Irene Langhorne Gibson, 1878-1958 was born. Her beauty, charm, and vivacity captivated the artist Charles Dana Gibson who, following their marriage in 1895, cast his celebrated, style-setting "Gibson Girl" illustrations in her image.
