America’s classic pin-ups get a refresh in NYC

Louis K Meisel Gallery in NYC is set to host the ‘Great American Pin-Up’ exhibition to pay homage to some of the best publicity pieces from the late 1940s and 1950s. Rather evocative and a little bit dirty back in their day, these oil prints, watercolours and pastels by Gil Elvgren, Alberto Vargas and Rolf Armstrong respectively, take you back to the age of pin-ups. Full of ‘girl next door’ scenes, the 47-piece collection contains many rare oversized compositions. The exhibition runs from 2nd April-2nd May.
