About the Author
Gillette Elvgren (1914-80) was born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota, where his father operated a paint store. He created billboard, poster, and magazine illustrations, but is best known for his pin-up art, much of which was featured on Brown & Bigelow calendars. Elvgren's relationship with Brown & Bigelow spanned nearly thirty years. He painted mainly in oils and used live models as well as photography for the basis of his painting. The "Elvgren Girl" was a real girl--sweet, pretty, and charming like her pictures. Gil Elvgren has emerged in recent years as the artist most loved and respected by pin-up collectors and fans worldwide.
