Exposition du Centenaire de la Lithographie (1895). Frédéric Hugo d’Alési (Romanian-French, 1849-1906). Colour lithograph. V&A.
A poster advertising a centennial exhibition of Lithography at the Galerie Rapp, Paris, in 1895. Frédéric d’Alési worked mainly in Paris. In this Paris scene (the Eiffel Tower is in the distance), he depicts a fashionably dressed woman of the 1890s admiring prints at an outdoor print booth. Although the place where the exhibition is being held - Galerie Rapp - is mentioned, no dates or opening times appear.

Model pose and finished painting of “Pot Luck” by Gil Elvgren, 1961


lovethepinups:

This bomber was decorated with Freeman Elliott’s “Hit the Deck” from he 1940’s. Each and every plane decorated with nose art had it’s own identity which the members of the flying teams embraced as it became a symbol of hope and good luck on that each would return from their flying mission. During WWII, we lost over 52,000 Air Force men to combat and another 15,000 to Stateside training accidents. There were almost 36,000 planes were lost in combat and accidents. It was a time when “Luck and Hope” were needed by those who defended our nation and the world. For many of you that might have read the best seller “Unbroken” - you realize the price our fathers and grandfathers paid during the war. Hope the history gives you a little perspective into the importance of this Pinup art during this period of history.
