Description

    T. N. Thompson - Original Pin-up Painting (1958). T. N. Thompson took over the famous yearly "Artist's Sketch Pad" calendar from Earl Mac Pherson in 1951, producing it for the next seven years. He was also involved in similar-format calendars for other companies, such as this example of "Studio Sketches" in 1958, where this painting appeared twice. Published as both the cover of the yearly calendar and the month of March, it was titled "A Nice Little Lass." Rendered in oil on linen, it measures 30 x 24. This painting was reproduced in The Great American Pin-up (Martignette & Meisel), page 276, fig. 644. A March 1958 calendar page and a color copy of the "Studio Sketches" cover are included.
