Jones was a 20th century Philadelphia painter and illustrator. He was a frequent contributor to Scribner’s Magazine covers, producing several images for the popular journal. His illustrations are marked by their bold design, with thick outlining and broad flat areas of color. This painting of a masquerading couple riding in a Venetian gondola down the Grand Canal is suggestive of a romantic European experience and was likely made to illustrate a fiction story in Scribner’s Magazine.
