Fourth of July Pinups and Pups






My favorite artist Gil Elvgreen painted plenty of patriotic pin ups, which is no surprise since most of his work was featured in calendars.  Here are a few of his best:
Dance Party Date, 1950

Looking for Trouble, 1953


Skirts Ahoy!

Catsup Mishap


And here are my favorite Fourth of July Pin Ups.
