A patriotic red, white and blue in color 1940s WWII era original pin-up painting by the prolific calendar artist Walt Otto. A darling depiction of a curvy brunette pin-up girl bowling, in sexy Victory Girl attire. Otto made a career of creating the active type pin-up, his paintings appeared twice as covers for the Saturday Evening Post, and his artwork was featured on billboards and posters for major US companies, including Alka-Seltzer, Shell Oil, Anheuser-Busch, Schlitz Beer, Kellogg's and many other nationally known advertisers. More often than not, he would incorporate pin-up themes into his advertising creations.
