An inventive stark modernist pin up mixed medium work by the Washington D.C. commercial artist and illustrator Russell Hill. The artist worked in gouache and airbrush to create sleek and unique images of the feminine form that found him much in demand in the advertising world of the 1940s. We have seen other examples by this artist for Tabu Lipstick that are extraordinary, we assume this was created to be used as calendar art for a calendar company, love the machine age minimalist interior. In a very fine state of conservation and handsomely framed behind glass.
