Peter Driben
Beauty Parade

1948

$18,500

About

One of the finest Peter Driben pin-up girl cover illustrations to come on the market, created for the December, 1948 edition of Beauty Parade, a popular Men's title promising The World's Loveliest Girls. Along with being lovely, Driben's pin-up creations are recognized as some of the most flamboyant and unique works in the genre, with girls who looked both low-rent and up-for-anything when compared to the more austere Varga and Petty girls who graced the pages of Esquire. In her excellent analysis on the artist in the recently released Taschen volume The Art Of Pin-up, author Dian Hanson notes "Driben's girls couldn't really be called "good". Their costumes were consciously trashy, their heels whorishly high and their thighs just too far too voluptuous." And presumably; therein lies the appeal! Sight size 27" by 35" Framed 35" by 43"
