Spotlight on Illustrator Charles Gates Sheldon
Charles Gates Sheldon (1889 - 1960) is an artist best known for his pin-ups, Hollywood, and fashion drawings for magazines from about 1900 to the 1930s. He was one of the highest paid illustrators of his time and studied under the famed Art Nouveau artist Alphonse Mucha in Paris. Collector's Shangri-La is proud to feature several newly acquired Sheldon originals including work from the Estate of Charles Martignette, collector, historian, and author of The Great American Pin-Up.
