A wonderful original pin-up painting by Irving Winer, who was active creating covers for the girlie magazine titles of the 1940s such as Titter, Wink and Beauty Parade. He is also remembered for his numerous published pin-up calendar images usually signed with the single word "Wyner".  In this work --an obvious homage to Rita Hayworth in 1946's Gilda--a pretty slender redhead, stands both coy and confident in a green dress with bullet bra detailing.

The artist started out in New York doing pin-up illustrations before he moved West to work in Hollywood as an illustrator, settling in with studio set work and animation. Painting is handsomely framed in a very nice contemporary gallery frame and ready to enjoy.
