I have this print with a deco lady holding out her hands to the sky in a garden setting– is the artist R. A. Fox or Maxfield Parrish?

Question: I have this print of a art deco lady holding out her hands in a garden setting.  Is this by Parrish or Fox?

Answer:  The print is titled “Dawn” and was painted by  Robert Wood.  This print was issued as a nude,  with later prints “censored” by  painting a overlay of paint on the lady.  Others were then printed with a dress.

During the 1920s – the time period of the Golden Age of Illustration many artists did very  similar images because of the demand by the public.
