Pinup girl art is something I am starting to collect. If I had to pick an artist that appeals to me the most I would have to say Gil Evgren. Some people might think this sort of art is a little too risky or inappropriate. I respect that. But with art it is all in the eye of the beholder. To me this is a huge example of Americana and a beautiful one at that. I love how the images are tasteful and not smutty in any way. There is a sort of innocence to the women depicted. I also love the era they are portrayed in. Pinup art started sometime in the 1930 and grew in popularity. There has been a resurgence in interest in this art because it is so timeless.This picture shows his models posing for his art. It is great to see his inspiration.
Here are a few examples of Gil’s work.
