The 1940's and 50's were the Golden Age of pinup art. There are some wonderful pinup artists working today, but there is an important difference: innocence. The pinup girl of the 40's looked as if she had no idea that she was bringing out the wolf in any red-blooded male who looked at her. Most of today's pinup girls know that only too well.
There are a handful of photographers producing classic style pinup art, keeping the art alive.
