Full matted view

 

This original fine art figure study by the pre-eminent pin-up illustrator comes from a collection of Gil Elvgren preliminary graphite drawings that we acquired which were found in a house in Sarasota, Florida where the artist once lived. With restraint and a detailed eye towards anatomy, the artist captures a brunette with a contemplative pose, offering a view of the seated figure in a relaxed state. The work depicts the human form with more realism than the idealized figures of pin-up girls, but his same technical ability is seen in this rare unpublished work.
