Malcolm Strauss
Edwardian Beauty of The Motor Age

c. 1905

About

New York artist and illustrator Malcolm A. Strauss specialized in genre works of early motor carriages. The artist created posters for The Automobile Club of America showing early car race scenes from the infancy of the motor age. He also created numerous illustrations for magazines that showcased adventurous Americans behind the wheel. This work stands out for featuring a female driver, an unusual depiction of an independent early 20th century "new woman." This artwork has print usage notations on the verso indicating it was indeed a published illustration that could have appeared as a color supplement in a newspaper of the early 1900s. The artist maintained a New York City studio were he painted portraits of the high society and was a member of The Society of Independent Artists and had several one man shows in the city. Signed LL. Sight Size 13" x 25" Framed 24" x 36"
