Published calendar of image by American Art Works

Who's There? is a large and genre defining oil on board pin-up painting by Edward Eggleston, which was published by the American Art Works calendar company in the early 1930s. This is a rare surviving published calendar painting by the New York artist, created in an impressive light and shadow technique, capturing an art deco nude flapper girl in a somewhat startled peek-a-boo sexy and unguarded pin-up moment. Eggleston was a gifted and well-established artist in his day -- he is best remembered today for his Atlantic City resort advertising posters of the 1930s which all featured stylized opulent bathing beauty pin-up girls. This is just a remarkable work of art and one of only a few surviving Eggleston pin-up painting to come on the market. Painting is in excellent condition and is handsomely framed in a wide profile gold wood gallery frame and ready to display.
