Summer of '42 (Deluxe)

Alberto Vargas

This lovely Varga Girl, published in Esquire's 1942 calendar, must have been a welcome sight for those who turned to her image in the month of September, almost one year after America entered World War II. Most likely painted in the spring or summer of 1941 (to meet the '42 calendar publishing deadline), she brought her pre-war innocence and carefree repose forward to a time when the world was lacking both.

  This artwork was produced in both a Deluxe edition (shown here) as well as a Summer of '42, Arches edition.
