This is Golden Age artist Fran Hopper, standing next to a portrait of herself she painted in the 1940s, around the time she was working for the publisher Fiction House.
Trina Robbins just e-mailed this to me—as rediscovering Ms. Hopper alive and well was joint effort between us!—and I still can’t believe how fortunate we are to have a chance to preserve one more small corner of women’s comics history before her memories were lost to us like so many others.
Fiction House comics are all in the public domain, so it’s not too hard to find Ms. Hopper’s work online if you dig around, but here are two stories about adventure heroines Mysta of the Moon and Gale Allen (along with a Lily Renée story) from the Golden Age Comic Book Stories blog.  It’s fun stuff, and Ms. Hopper’s art is capable and strong.
