Sample of Charles Gibson as a pyrographyKristin Maxson
I have a hand carved wood burned example of Charles Gibson work with the "Gibson Girl" It is titled "Old Sweet Hearts of Mine". It is well done as in a artists hand. I am not sure if it is an original due to the fact, I can not find examples of Gibsons work as in pyrography methods.

How can I safely get an appraisal of what I think is an original sketch by C.D. Gibson? Do I need to travel with it to an auction house or to the National Museum of American Illustration? Suggestions? I am hesitant to sent large scale emails. Am I being too cautious?
Charles Dana Gibson / World War IRobert Voigt
I am doing research about the Division of Pictorial Publicity which Gibson headed during WWI. (The Division was made up of many artists/illustrators who volunteered their talents to create posters, billboards, etc. for the war effort, and it was part of a larger organization called the Committee of Public Information headed by George Creel).) At least one secondary source indicates that Gibson maintained the somewhat informal records of the work of his Division, and that those records were in his possession at the end of the war. After extensive research I have been unable to locate those records (if they still exist) -- they are NOT in the National Archives along with the surviving records of the Committee on Public Information. Does anyone have any knowledge about where records of Gibson's Division might be?

Does anyone know what this means?

Several years ago I purchased a C.D.Gibson drawing on e-bay. It is a color drawing of a man in a kilt escorting a woman in a pink dress. It was described as an origional, but the more I look at it.....I'm not sure. If not, it's a nice print. It is old. It is signed:c d Gibson. Another signature: Grace Libby. She must have been the woman being escorted. She is taller than her escort. It is 8" by 10 ". I recently purchased a rare(signed by gibson) book with gibson illustrations. My drawing was not included in it. The signatures seem to be the same as on my drawing/print.
If you know about this drawing, or if you have any ideas, please e-mail me.

Since Charles Dana Gibson was an extremely popular artist of the period (late 1800s, early 1900s), it was quite common for budding artists to emulate his pen and ink style and subject matter. Often, they would actually sign his name to their copies. Other times, they would sign their own name, or perhaps even a combination of both. ("Apologies to...")
It is quite common for these copies to be found framed for hanging in their respective households. Most of these are probably authentic in the respect that they are from the time period, so in that regards there is a quaint nostalgic value to them. But, the actual worth of these hand-drawn copies to an art collector would be very little.
People of Dickens plate signed C.D. GibsonCindy
I have a 16" diameter plate with people of Dickens on the plate. The plate is signed ( after C.D. Gibson ). I have not been able to locate plates done by C.D Gibson. Does anyone have information about plates he may have done?

Hi, I need to know who the artist might be of the print you can see at this URL:
It's a Victorian, ca 1900-17 or so gal that looks like a Gibson Gal. Mark looks like two deco "G's" facing each other. Help! Please someone look and advise me. thanks ! Marcia
