Few illustrators define an era more than John Held, Jr., whose cartoon humor of the flapper era is still well recognized today. His images of Betty Coed and Joe College graced the pages of the New Yorker, Harpers Bazaar and Vanity Fair, showcasing the lifestyle of the new generation while often poking fun at its out-of-touch elders.

Held made only a few posters, a wonderful small group for the New Haven Railroad in the Twenties and Thirties that were a big hit. His humorous poster of a moonlit cookout on a beach at Martha's Vineyard features his unmistakable caricature style and is one of the most sought after images of the island.
