George Petty Pin Up Girls

George Brown Petty IV was an American pin-up artist. His pin-up art appeared primarily in Esquire and Fawcett Publication's True but was also in calendars marketed by Esquire, True and Ridgid Tool Company. Petty's Esquire gate folds originated and popularized the magazine device of centerfold spreads. Reproductions of his work were widely rendered by military artists as nose art decorating warplanes during the Second World War, including the Memphis Belle, known as “Petty Girls”.
