The Follies were in high gear when Morse met Avonne Taylor, a beautiful Follies girl. During his year-long romance with Taylor from 1922-23 he drew a series of 80 illustrations for her, all on his personal Hotel Des Artistes stationary. These illustrations were discovered among personal scrapbooks belonging to Taylor in a storage facility upon her death in 1992 and had been unseen for 70 years.
The entire Taylor-Morse Collection is unveiled in The Life And Art of Wesleye Morse
These Were The Days, 1922-23(?). Pencil, pen and ink and gouache on stationery, 7.25 x 10.75 in. (18.5 x 27 cm)
