This wonderful, coy and large original pastel on board by Earl Moran was created as a commissioned illustration for Brown & Bigelow. The pin up calendar image was published in the early 1950's with the quip "Leading a parade / Without a falter, / Is easier than leading / A man to the altar." Pastel is beautifully framed in a gold gilt fine museum frame and properly lined with printed tear sheet of published calendar included in sale.
