    Description

    Cardwell S. Higgins (1902-1983) Original Magazine Cover Art (1942). This is an absolutely marvelous pin-up image created by Cardwell Higgins. Published in 1942 as the cover for the first issue of Male magazine, it is cleverly subtitled, "The Male Home Companion." "Make a Wish!" the stunning blonde suggestively remarks to her adoring admirer. A rarity for several reasons, this painting remained in Higgins' personal collection (and hung in his living room) until it was purchased in 1980. Also, you will note that the frame of the painting in shown on the cover of the magazine, and it is still in its original frame just as it appeared on the cover over sixty years ago. Expertly rendered in pastel on board, it is framed (28.5 x 29.5) with a sight size of approximately 24 x 25.5. A complete issue of the Male magazine is included.
