    Description

    Walt Otto (1895-1963) Original Pin-up Painting (c.1950). Before Walt Otto began painting the beautiful country girls for which he became famous, he produced numerous cover paintings for national magazines, such as The Saturday Evening Post. He also did advertising work for some of the major U.S. corporations, including Alka Seltzer, Shell Oil, and Kellogg's. His work for these companies was reproduced as billboards, posters, and point-of-sale displays. This painting, one of Otto's classic subjects, a beautiful girl with a cute puppy, was published as a calendar and was also used as a 3-D die cut in-store advertising display. It is rendered in oil on canvas board, measures 30 x 22, and is signed lower right. This image appears in The Great American Pin-up (Martignette & Meisel) on page 360, fig. 855.
