173 Beautiful Pin-up Girls from the pages of Playboy
During his career, Alberto Vargas has always been associated with cutting edge giants who adored the American women. The Peruvian-born artist began his career in the United States as the official painter for the Ziegfeld Follies from 1919 to 1934. After the Ziegfeld years, Alberto moved to Hollywood where he was employed as a artist by various movie studios until 1940, when he was hired to replace pinup artist George Petty at Esquire magazine. Apart from gracing the pages of Esquire magazine from 1940 to1947, his flawless watercolor and airbrushed Varga Girls adorned aircraft, ships, and even uniformed jackets of the US servicemen during the World War II era.
The late 1950's saw Vargas start a relationship with the then new publisher of Playboy magazine, Hugh Hefner, and his pictures ran in Playboy from 1960 until 1978. This is a collection of all of his pin-ups during that era. The pictures are all complete and referenced by the year and month they appeared. They are also referenced by the cute and sexy saying's that adorned each pin-up ("You're really forgetful, darling - that's the third time this afternoon you've covered me with suntan lotion").
This disc is perfect for the collector as a reference for his collection, or printing out images to hang and admire. The images are printable and flawless and make great prints. This is on a cd-rom and comes complete with case and cover artwork, sealed in plastic.
