In 1937, Gil Elvgren began painting calendar pin-ups for one of America’s leading publishing co’s, where he created about 60 works on 28″×22″ canvas with a distinguishing printed signature. Many of his pin-ups were reproduced as nose art on military aircraft during WW II. Around 1944, Gil was approached by Brown and Bigelow, where he began working with 30″×24″ canvases, a format he would use for the next 30 years, and signed his work in cursive.

This is a classic vintage style pin-up Poster originally published in the 1960s. This Poster, by Gil Elvgren - one of the most famous and respected pin-up artists of the twentieth century, is from the canvas oil painting of the same name.
Gillette Elvgren was born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota, where he worked in his father’s paint store. He created billboard, poster and magazine artwork, but is most famous for his pin-up girls. The “Elvgren Girl” was known for her sweet, sexy and innocent demeanor from the late 1930s through the early 1970s.
This classic pin-up poster honors the beauty of this unique art form and evokes the vivid images of simpler times. She’s beautiful!
Want it? Buy this one for our cost of $10 plus $10 shipping. It’s on canvas and slightly wrinkled but should frame out nicely. (a very nice fellow from Germany has already bought it!)
