Gibson gave voice to women of the era through the Gibson Girl. Even though a century has passed since his provocative, yet comedic art touched millions of readers, many of the problems he tackled are still visible on today's stage. Suffrage, gender equality, government corruption, and big business influence were the era's leading issues. As 2016 delivers another election year and important choices are soon to be made, Then and Now reminds us of concerns that sadly are still unresolved.
Then and Now presents some of Charles Dana Gibson's best sketches and wit, delivering a fun read. Yet, like his drawings, there are issues to ponder just beneath the entertaining cartoons - issues that are as relevant now as then.
