About

Medium: Oil on Canvasboard Signature: Signed Middle Left Sight Size 24.00" x 30.00;" Framed 27.50" by 33.50" Calendar Art for Herald's Casino - Reno, Nevada A large, sultry original published pin-up calendar painting by the prolific and important American artist Fritz Willis. Willis was the last true star pin-up artist of the old guard, when illustrative pin-up reigned supreme in Men's magazines and advertising calendars. The artist worked during the very tail end of the genre's popularity. Showcasing a near-nude sex kitten, sipping chianti in heels, opera gloves and silk stockings with the artist's trademark aura of bored sophistication. The Willis girl had no pretense of innocence, no oops moment or pursed lips, in many regards she was a creature of her time and stands as a time capsule when viewed today.
