Illustration for cover of McCall's Magazine, Neysa McMein

Neysa McMein (1888 - 1949) was as popular as her male counterparts in capturing the American Beauty. She sold millions of magazines with her covers for McCall's, Saturday Evening Post, Collier's, McClure's, Woman's Home Companion, Photoplay, Liberty, Associated Sunday Magazine, and Ladies World. She also did advertising work: memorably for Palmolive; Cadillac, Lucky Strike, Adam's Gum, Coke, Hummingbird Hosiery, Gainsborough Hair Nets, and Colgate. She painted the first Betty Crocker and updated her through the years. She was a "member" of the Algonquin club; there and at her studio, she entertained Mary Pickford, Dorothy Parker, Harpo Marx, Jascha Heifitz, Noel Coward, Irving Berlin, Robert Benchley, all while she painted.
