A large format, tightly rendered preliminary charcoal and pastel pin-up illustration created for the Brown & Bigelow Calendar Company, the finished pastel was titled That's A Deal. It is boldly signed and dated 1947, a fine offering by the prolific American pin-up artist Rolf Armstrong. The Stan to whom the piece is inscribed is likely fellow staff artist Stan Fenelle, a close friend of Armstrong's. The model is either Olga or Vera Steckler, a pair of pretty brunette sisters who both often modeled for these bikini bound bathing beauty calendar girl images of the 1940s as envisioned by The Father of American Pin-up, Rolf Armstrong.
Artwork is handsomely framed and properly lined behind glass in the original limed wood frame and ready to hang and enjoy.
