HAROLD GAZE (1885-1962)

An Australian illustrator who was unknown to me before today. :-)

 Looks like Michael Parkes... :-) 
He wrote a lot of children's books, when living in Australia and England, but then he moved to USA and when older, started painting naked women like this... he was called "the bubble man", because there were a lot of bubbles in his work :-D
