Pearl Frush was one of the top three women pin up artists from the 1950s. Born in Iowas but raised in Mississippi Pearl studied her trade in Philadelphia, New York, and Chicago. It was in Chicago that she opened her first shop in the early 1940s.
In 1947 Pearl was working for Gerlach-Barklow Calendar Company, where her Aquatour Series broke all company sales records. By 1955 Pearl Frush was so sought after that eventually Brown & Bigelow hired her.
