I don't know if you saw a post on my blog about pin up art. Years ago, I bought out an entire estate where the gentleman was a salseman for Brown & Bigleow (St. Paul, MN). I have had and still have several salesman sample calendar tops. Since you know pin up art, you know that Elvgren in the pic above worked for Brown & Bigleow as well as MANY famous American artists (Norman Rockwell). I LOVE pin up art too. I have this one with a cowgirl - wanted to reproduce into a tshirt - but, I'm not sure of copywright laws.
Wow! What a find! Elvgren is probably my favorite although Petty has a clean, distinct look too. Would you be interested in selling one or two of the calendars? I'm not sure about copyright either, but you can definitely not have too many pin-ups! lol
Thanks for your thoughts! Come back to visit again soon!
