A fresh to the market 1950s original pin-up oil painting that is attributed to Ben-Hur Baz, with custom advertising for Krome-Oil Piston Rings. A busty blonde bombshell ala Marilyn Monroe is shown seductively posed in a new and very revealing bikini that highlights the tan lines left from her past, more modest swimwear. A recent gallery acquisition from an Erie Pennsylvania estate where we also purchased a signed Ben-Hur Baz painting titled Maid In Muskegon, which will be posting soon at the gallery.

Ben-Hur Baz was a gifted pin-up and glamour artist who became well known in the late 1940s and early 1950s for his association with Esquire magazine. Beginning in 1946, he painted pin-ups for that publication's Gallery of Glamour and later contributed to their calendars and monthly centerfolds as well. Painting is in a fine state of conservation and handsomely framed and linen lined and ready to enjoy.

Born in Mexico in 1906, Baz was extremely prolific. Aside from pin-up and Glamour art, he provided story illustrations to mainstream magazines, worked on various national advertising campaigns, and was a successful paperback novel cover artist.
