A snappy and sexy original pastel illustration by Earl Moran commissioned as a 1951 Brown & Bigelow calendar. Text reads "Here's an extra addition you can hardly refuse; for this little gal is just covered in news..." Pastel is beautifully framed and condition is outstanding as is the image.

Brown & Bigelow at some point altered the text quip on this image as seen below in a period ink blotter included in sale. Text on this example reads "She's headline news so stop the presses ~~ This little girl with the taffy tresses".
