Overview
Gil's girls: The seminal pin-up artist Post-depression America was in desperate need of a defining iconography that would lift it out of the black and white doldrums, and it came in the form of Gil Elvgren s Technicolor fantasies of the American dream. His technique which earned him a reputation as "The Norman Rockwell of cheesecake" involved photographing models and then painting them into gorgeous hyper-reality, with longer legs, more flamboyant hair and gravity-defying busts, and in the process making them the perfect moral-boosting eye-candy for every homesick private. "Glamour is back... TASCHEN offers us a look back at these calendar and advertisement goddesses of which Gil Elvgren is king." erotisme-fr.com, France Text in English, French, and German "
