- Full Description
Finally, a feature article on the long neglected sexy pin-up illustrations of the brilliant Earl Moran, perhaps best remembered for his pin-up paintings featuring a young and unknown Marilyn Monroe--and many nudes! In his time, his images were as widely known as those of Elvgren and Vargas. Numerous examples of his original art, printed tear sheets and covers, and rare, previously unpublished photographs. Also: Thomas Nast, best known of the late 1800s editorial cartoonists.
Quite a bit of nudity, as Moran was more prone to doing full nudes than Elvgren and some of the other pin-up artists. There's also an inset article about Earl's daughter Peggy Moran, who became quite the model and actress, starring in The Mummy's Hand and other classics, and also modeling for her father.
And "How the West was Sold," changing representations of the frontier in mid-19th century illustration. From Currier & Ives to the towering painter of the west, Thomas Moran, two authors examine the west as portrayed in paintings and publications.
Book reviews, exhibitions and events, and more round out the issue!
