INSPIRE ME: VARGAS GIRLS

 

From the time Esquire first introduced America to the Varga Girl, in 1940, the name Vargas has been synonymous with pin up and glamour art. In fact, the word “vargas” has actually been applied to almost every kind of pin up subject – a fitting tribute to the most famous and prolific glamour artist of all time.
Vargas illustrating playing cards and taking freelance work for True magazine. In 1960, he was hired as an illustrator for Playboy. The “Vargas Girl” represented a high level of perfection in beauty, erotic- but never vulgar. Even when Playboy would have allowed him to depict full frontal nudity, Vargas always kept his models discretely draped. – SOURCE: PIN UP AND CARTOON GIRLS
