Then and Now traces Charles Dana Gibson's thought-provoking satirical artwork as it captured the admiration of both men and women with seductive humor for more than thirty years. Not a biography of Gibson, it is a fun look at his satire and over 260 classic illustrations he wielded to lampoon society from his first cartoons in the Victorian 1880s through the rowdy 1920s.

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.
