    Description

    Arnold Kohn - Original Pin-up Art (c.1950). Arnold Kohn enjoyed a successful career as an illustrator working in several areas of the field. He was a regular contributor to Playboy magazine from its inception in 1953, and his pin-up art appeared on calendars in the mid-'50s. Kohn painted covers for the pulp magazines earlier in his career, and later contributed his talents to several paperback publishers. This delightful and dazzling example of his pin-up art is one of only a few originals known to exist. It is rendered in gouache on board, it measures 21 x 16 and is signed lower right. This painting was reproduced in The Great American Pin-up (Martignette & Meisel), page 352, fig. 826.
