Charles Rebel Stanton - The Golden Age of the Flapper

The Golden Age of the Flapper

Charles Rebel Stanton

1890 – 1954


A successful commercial artist and sculptor, Stanton was one of the artists commissioned to undertake the lavish decoration of the great ocean liner, the Queen Mary. He also produced many superb drawings of the London Blitz, although he was not an Official War Artist.  This delightful work surely reflects the joie-de-vivre of a young lady of the late Twenties – a flapper has been described as a young lady of the Western World who flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behaviour.  Times do change!
