The 50s was the times of excitement for the 50s pinup girls in America. The most amazing photography and pinup art took place in this decade and it will never be repeated again, unfortunately.
There were many renowned artists that literally take your breath away like greats such as Gil Elvgren, Rolf Armstrong, Peter Driben, Earl Moran, Art Frahm, Edward Runci and of course, Alberto Vargas. These artists were world famous for their overwhelming abilities to produce breathtaking art in the form of posters, prints and photography.
Bettie Page was absolutely the most celebrated of the 50s pinup girls and sticks out in history as one of the most breath-taking poster beauties. She was stunning, thrilling and incredible and made the 50s pinup girls genre what it is to this very day. Anywhere you look for pinup art, you will find some form or rendition of Bettie Page.
I have been collecting pinup art for a very long time and have grown fond of not only the artistic ability and nostalgic photography, but the tastefulness of the artist as well as the subject.
My very favorite of all of the 50s pinup girls has got to be Rita Hayworth. Not only was she very sexy, she was very elegant and stylish in all she did and all she was presented in. You will not find a legitimate Rita Hayworth piece that is discourteous to women or the genre like you will in the more recent creations that started in the 1960s.
Another gorgeous 50s pin up model was Anita Ekberg who was famous for her well-endowed curves. Bob Hope had joked that her parents had received the Nobel Prize for architecture while she was touring with him and William Holden in 1954 on entertainment trips for the troops.
There will never be another decade to match that of the 50s pinup girls art and posters. The times are gone so I do everything I can to grow my collection while some of it remains uncorrupted and available.
