A sultry brunette in a form fitting, canary yellow number cools herself with a personal pinwheel hand fan in this original oil on board pin-up painting by Peter Driben. Created as the cover of the February, 1946 edition of Titter magazine--a post-war pulp title that promised Girls, Gags and Giggles. Titter bridged the gap between the spicy pulp titles of the 1930s and the men's magazines like Playboy and it's many imitators and competitors which took over newsstands in the 1950s. A fabulous example by this prolific American pin-up artist.
