This breezy sailor girl, bathing beauty pin-up graced the cover of the July 24, 1937 edition of Liberty magazine, a popular long running Bernarr MacFadden publication. By the artist R.C. Kauffmann–a personal favorite of the gallery–this is a tremendously spirited, large format oil painting with spectacular zest and allure. Kauffmann is best remembered for his Saturday Evening Post covers as well as a series of extremely popular World War II posters that were distributed in quantities second to only Norman Rockwell. This painting is reproduced on page 76 in the 1992 book Rivals Of Rockwell-The Best of Liberty Covers by Dorye Roettger. Painting comes matted and framed in a wide profile, handsome, silver gallery frame; ready to hang and enjoy.
