Grapefruit Moon Gallery previously sold this painting in July of 2014; we are delighted to again offer it for sale!
Showgirl Spectacular is an original pin-up calendar painting by Edward Runci that was published in 1953 by the Shaw-Barton Calendar Company. Modeled by the artist's wife, Maxine, the image shows pretty showgirl dancer posed in a playful and sexy nod to the burlesque. This is a delightful and well-conceived artwork by an illustrator who has enjoyed some very fine auction results of late and whose work seldom comes to market. Framed in a handsome, period gold wood frame with European verso exhibit label from a previous showing.
