Gil Elvgren (March 15, 1914 to February 29, 1980), born Gilette Elvgren, was an American painter of pin-up girls, advertising and illustration. Elvgren lived in various locations, and was active from the 1930s to 1970s. Elvgren studied at the American Academy of Art. Elvgren was one of the most important pin-up and glamour artists of the twentieth century. In addition, he was a classical American illustrator. He was a master of portraying the feminine, but he wasn't limited to the calendar pin-up industry. He was strongly influenced by the early "pretty girl" illustrators, such as Charles Dana Gibson, Andrew Loomis, and Howard Chandler Christy. Other influences included the Brandywine School founded by Howard Pyle. Today he is best known for his pin-up paintings for Brown & Bigelow. The collection of pin-ups for sale are all from his early works while working for Louis F. Dow Company St. Paul Mn. Elvgren worked there from 1937 to 1944.
