This original gouache and ink Al Buell published pin up was painted in 1959 for the Brown & Bigelow Calendar Company, and first appeared as the June 1961 image for a 12 page calendar titled Buell's Beauties. The model appears as an artist, brush in hand, in this colorful mid-century modernist calendar painting. A fresh to the market find in pristine condition and handsomely silk matted and framed behind glass, ready to enjoy. The published vintage calendar page of the painting is included with the sale.
