    Bill Randall - Original Pin-up Painting (1964). An extremely versatile artist, Bill Randall's work graced the covers of numerous magazines including Esquire, Collier's, American Weekly, and Parents Magazine. He is best remembered, however, for his pin-up images created for the "Bill Randall's Date Book" first published in 1953 by the Kemper-Thomas Calendar Company. The calendar showcased the artist's carefree yet sexy style and instantly made Randall a celebrity. This delightful example of a Randall pin-up was published by Brown & Bigelow in 1964. A wonderful "Paris fashion" subject -- the newspaper held by the scantly clad young lady announces "Paris Decrees Lighter Clothing." Painted in gouache on board, it measures approximately 23 x 18 and is signed upper right. This painting was reproduced in The Great American Pin-up (Martignette & Meisel) page 362, fig. 858.
