Tom C. Keogh was an American-born fashion illustrator, graphic artist, and set and costume designer, known for his sketches of clothes by French couturiers, his covers for the French edition of Vogue, and his Christmas windows for the Galeries Lafayette. His set designs for Hollywood include those for Kismet, The Pirate, and Daddy Longlegs. He was married to Theodora Roosevelt, a granddaughter of President Theodore Roosevelt. The present drawing, however, seems to reflect what Wikipedia delicately refers to as "his uncertain private life."
