    Description

    Billy De Vorss - Original Pin-up/Glamour Art (1940-1950). Billy De Vorss was an accomplished pin-up artist, even more impressive when you consider the fact that his artistry was self-taught. His graceful pastel beauties were published as popular calendar prints by the Louis F. Dow and Brown & Bigelow calendar companies, and adorned the covers of Beauty Parade and Flirt magazines, along with other publications throughout the 1940s. This lovely image represents a worthy example of De Vorss' glamour art work. Rendered in pastel on board, it is framed (36.5 x 28.5) with an approximate sight size of 33 x 25, and is signed lower left. This painting was reproduced in The Great American Pin-up (Martignette & Meisel), page 126 fig. 258.
