Gil Elvgren pin-up artist | 8/9
Gil Elvgren's ability to capture the spirit and sensuality of American feminine beauty was unsurpassed
This photograph was taken in 1970.
His pinups were pictures of real girls in real, everyday situations. Sometimes they were a bit exaggerated, but they always worked.
Elvgren stood out not just for his painting and advertising graphics. He was also a notable professional photographer, wielding the camera with the same dexterity as he wielded his brush. And his amazing energy and talent did not stop there, since he was a respected, even revered, teacher of students who often went on to become famous artists in their own right thanks, in no small measure, to Elvgren's personal instruction and encouragement.
