St. Paul, MINN: Louis Dow, Circa 1950. Ephemera. Single Sheet. 5 X 7 Inches. Near Fine. Item #1264
1950's Pin-Up by the Louis Dow Company signed and inscribed by artist Gil Elvgren. Signed by Gil in 1979 to John Whiting, noted Virginia paper collector and dealer. John is legendary in the paper world and added his touch to the film world by supplying all of the random mags and ads used on buildings and walls in the John Nash film "A Beautiful Mind" that starred Russell Crowe. The pin-up is titled "French Dressing" and is clean and bright. Slight wear to upper right corner.
Straight out Gil Elvgren autographs such as this one are incredibly scarce.
