Cover: Unpublished presentation drawing by Gordon Conway. Paris or
London, ca. 1923-1924. Ink, tempera, watercolor on paper, 18' x 14
inches. Courtesy family of Gordon Conway, private collection of Dr. Harvey W.
and Carolyn Allen, Fredericksburg, Virginia.
This drawing is reminiscent of Conway's Jazz Lint series and is similar to
Conway's commissioned, but only partially realized, set designs for Won-
der Bar, a musical play originating in Germany in the 192os and later
produced in 1930 at the Savoy Theatre in London. Dancing with agility
and a frenzied abandon, Conway's redheaded New Woman captures the
essence of the freedom-loving Jazz Age flapper amid a rainstorm of adult
toys as though every night were New Year's Eve. Raye Virginia Allen's ar-
ticle about Gordon Conway begins on page 17.
