I fell in love with the work of Alberto Vargas many years ago, when out of the blue at a vintage shop in Monterey, California, my husband introduced me to his artwork when we found several of his calendar sheets – from that time until now, they have been in the recesses of my memory. Recently on Pinterest I started a Pin-Up Girl board and these are a few of my favorites.
Something to note about Vargas’ models – They all exude their distinctiveness and beauty of character…so much more than just models in a studio – each one looking you straight in the eye with an honesty that is there to engage the viewer no matter when Mr. Vargas put brush to canvas!
