Who--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. An archived vintage copy of the published calendar is included in the sale with advertising from The American Cafe of Coshocton, Ohio.
