The collection of paintings - with dated 1950 Brown & Bigelow Mon Petit Chapeau Folio

This collection of three published Brown & Bigelow calendar girl paintings from 1950 offers a mid-century modernist Parisian take on classic pin up art. We believe the artist to be Jean-Gabriel Domergue who was active at the time in France, creating breezy coquettish often times topless hatted sophisticates. These are signed "Ioxia of Paris" we could not find any information on such artist. Included is a Mon Petit Chapeau dated 1950 Brown & Bigelow print folio by the same artist showing similar but not identical poses of the model who appears in these original paintings.The collection of three works is priced at $5000, individually these can be acquired at $1850 each.
