Penfield, Harper's Christmas DFP 351, 1895

This lively holiday poster features Father Christmas, raising a glass and escorting a lady to the holiday festivities.

Artist Edward Penfield, Harper's art director, designed a poster each month between 1894 and 1899. He introduced the art poster to Americans after the French had popularized advertising posters as the "art of the people" in the streets of Paris.
