On offer is a classic cheesecake pin up painting featuring a decidedly sexy bed-headed platinum blonde ala Marilyn Monroe by the prolific American pin-up artist Bill Randall. Bill Randall is best remembered for his wildly popular spiral bound "Randall's Date Book" 12 page calendars for The Kemper-Thomas Calendar Company. He also created a series of works in this vein, all featuring a seductive blonde in yellow lingerie against a black background, which appeared on hanging calendars throughout the 1950s. Painting is handsomely framed behind glass in a fabulous gold gilt gallery frame and remains in a fine state of conservation.
