Jeanne Dean

By Alberto Vargas
About the image
Modeled by the lovely Jeanne Dean, this image first appeared in 1942, America's first year at war and a time when many young lovers were separated by endless months and thousands of miles. Here, Jeanne holds an orchid, symbolic of young love, in her one hand and a note in the other. Perhaps it is a promise of devotion from her beau overseas. Jeanne represents the pure, unfettered moment of wonder when, in love, anything is possible.

Release Notes:

This image was printed on a patented archival paper called Opalesque which has a surface that emulated the look and feel of silk.

Collector's Notes:

Originally published in the Esquire magazine gatefold in June 1942.
