About Petty: George Petty was an American pin-up artist from the 1920s to the 1970s. His pin-up art appeared primarily in Esquire and True magazine, but was also in calendars marketed by Esquire, True and Ridgid Tool Company. Petty's Esquire gatefolds originated and popularized the magazine device of centerfold spreads. Reproductions of his work were widely rendered by military artists as nose art decorating warplanes during the Second World War, including the Memphis Belle. Robert Cummings portrayed Petty in the 1950 film "The Petty Girl". Note that George Petty started working for Esquire in 1933 until 1956 (although in the 1940s and 1950s, Alberto Vargas also did pin-ups for Esquire). His pin-up style was reproduced on the noses of the World War II fighter planes. Memphis Belle is an example of a reproduction of the "Petty Girls". An interesting point on Petty's pin-ups are that the women don't show their necks in the images he painted. This is an Original Lithograph Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction.
