A vintage old carefully archived calendar print - measures 22" x 28 3/4"
The model is Vera Bogach Gropper, the younger sister of frequent Armstrong model Olga Bogach. The two sisters took turns posing for this work in the summer of either 1949 or 50. Vera is a current penpal of Grapefruit Moon Gallery, and we enjoy our correspondences with her immensely. I attached a photo of the then 17 year pin-up model posed with this completed pastel at the bottom of this listing. The Bikini was introduced in America in 1946 but were not widely worn or sold for that matter in 1949, in lieu of finding a real bikini the artist used two handkerchiefs in this pose purchased at a local drugstore. (Thanks for the info and photo Vera ~~)

100% guaranteed original and vintage as always from Grapefruit Moon Gallery.






For reference only the lovely Vera Gropper posed with the completed work !
