Dimensions: 11''H x 9''W, frame, 15''H x 12''W. GEORGE R.M. HEPPENSTALL, Born June 7. 1901 and died in 1923.

From 1919 through 1922 he executed hundreds of costumes and fashion for theater and broadway. Heppenstall was able to sketch Ballerina Anna Pavlova from life, and design Miss Sarah Mellon's gown for the debutante ball.
