Artist's Bio: Gil Elvgren was an American painter of pin-up girls, advertising and illustration. He was a master of portraying the all-American ideal feminine, but he wasn’t limited to the calendar pin-up industry.
Like his famous Brown and Bigelow pinups, advertising work for Coca-Cola depicting typical American families, military scenes during World War II and the Korean War, and well-known illustrations for magazines in the 40s & 50s including McCall's, Cosmopolitan, and Good Housekeeping, Elvgren's images have been recognized as icons of American life.
Many of Elvgren's models, including Myrna Loy, Donna Reed, Arlene Dahl, Barbara Hale and Kim Novack, went on to successful careers of their own.
