Description

    Norman Theodore Mingo - Original Preliminary Pin-up Ad (1945-1950). Mingo is primarily known for his work with Mad magazine, but during the 1940s and 1950s, he created numerous memorable advertising images for Mennen. These ads featured beautiful pin-up girls, usually in some slinky or diaphanous garment, and were published in major magazines such as Life. This painting is a preliminary work, rendered in mixed media on board, and measures approximately 24 x 20. Most likely one of his works for Mennen -- the model is striking a typical pose often seen in these ads, and she is alluringly clad in the aforementioned see-through attire.
