About this poster

It’s Edwardian Ball time again, and as always, it’s a great pleasure to work with Justin Katz, the Edwardian Ball impresario, and once again I had a lot of fun making this poster!


My Edwardian Ball posters always have an edge of social critique in them. They are done with a wink and a nod, in keeping with the enjoyment of attending such an elaborate period pageant.


My 2024 poster for the Edwardian Ball is a portrait of architect Stanford White with art model turned superstar of stage and silent screen Evelyn Nesbit.


Stanford White was famous as one of the foremost architects of the Beaux-Arts style, his prolific architectural designs became known as “American Renaissance”. Simply put he created lavish Guilded Age mansions for the masters of the known universe, the Astors and the Vanderbilts among the pantheon.


White was one of a group of wealthy debauchées, all members of the Union Club, who organized frequent orgies in secret locations scattered about Manhattan. Mark Twain summed up Stanford White thus: “eagerly and diligently and ravenously and remorselessly hunting young girls to their destruction. These facts have been well known in New York for many years.”


Evelyn Nesbit was well-known too as New York model and chorus girl. She was frequently photographed for mass circulation newspapers, magazine advertisements, souvenir items and calendars (all media new to the Century). She started as an artist’s model in Philadelphia. Nesbit continued modeling after her family moved to New York, posing for artists including most notably Charles Dana Gibson who idealized her as a “Gibson Girl”, his extremely popular pin-ups of the era.
