Gil Elvgren: The Worlds Most Flattered Master

by Sad Man’s Tongue, Photos From  King Galleries

Nothing beats an Elvgren Vintage Pin Up. They say that the best form of flattery is when someone copies you. If that is so then Gil Elvgren is probably the mosts flattered vintage pin up artist in the world.Elvgren was a commercial success having been active in the 1930s to 1970s.

So many of the poses we see today from modern pin up girls and photo shoots emulate and pay homage to his work. He was truly an icon in his field and continues to live on long after his death.

Enjoy today’s gallery to Spain’s Freddie and the Filos song “Not Too Young”
