A large and new to the market, early 1950s pastel by Earl Moran, featuring the unlikely proportioned pin-up model Danice Daniels in a sexy, coy, playful, sex kitten pose that recalls Alberto Vargas' work for the pages of Playboy Magazine during the era. Work is properly lined and housed in an attactive gallery frame. A fine example of Earl Moran's masterful pastel work capturing his stylized ideals of feminine allure and temptation.

Photos from this setting and model shoot appeared in Capers Choicest Magazine in 1963, alongside the model's enviable measurements (5'5", 119 lbs, 38.23.37, blonde hair and chameleon like eyes). This was commissioned and used as Calendar Art by The Brown & Bigelow Calendar Company, Saint Paul Minnesota.
