Iconic Pin-Up Girls of World War II
In Europe, prior to the First World War, were the likes of Fernande Barrey (aka "Miss Fernande"), arguably the world's first pinup as is known in the modern sense. Click to subscribe for more WWII videos! http://bit.ly/WWIISubscribe America Goes to War now on Amazon! http://bit.ly/AmericaGoesToWar Miss Barrey displayed ample cleavage and full frontal nudity. Her pictures were cherished by soldiers on both sides of the First World War conflict. Worldwide digital video distribution by Janson Media http://www.janson.com Other pin-ups were artwork depicting idealized versions of what some thought a particularly beautiful or attractive woman should look like. An early example of the latter type was the Gibson girl, a representation of the New Woman drawn by Charles Dana Gibson. "Because the New Woman was symbolic of her new ideas about her sex, it was inevitable that she would also come to symbolize new ideas about sexuality." Unlike the photographed actresses and dancers generations earlier, fantasy gave artists the freedom to draw women in many different ways. The 1932 Esquire "men's" magazine featured many drawings and "girlie" cartoons but was most famous for its Vargas girls. Prior to WWII they were praised for their beauty and less focus was on their sexuality. However, during the war, the drawings transformed into women playing dress-up in military drag and drawn in seductive manners, like that of a child playing with a doll. The Vargas girls became so popular that from 1942–46, owing to a high volume of military demand, "9 million copies of the magazine-without adverts and free of charge was sent to American troops stationed overseas and in domestic bases." The Vargas Girls were adapted as nose art on many World War II bomber and fighter aircraft; Generally, they were considered inspiring, and not seen negatively, or as prostitutes, but mostly as inspiring female patriots that were helpful for good luck.

WWII Bomber Nose Art  2.
More than likely you won't see these WWII planes and their wonderful 'nose art' anymore unless you take in a museum or attend an air show. Once the pride of the military and absolutely crucial to the victory of WWII, today these planes have been relegated to government graveyards, museums, and clubs. Although frowned upon by today's military, during WWII almost all bombers sported some sort of nose art. Nude or partially nude or at the very least very sexy females were the favorite topic although some just featured a name or an occasional animal or cartoon. All were interesting and really make the viewer proud of the men who served! Nose art served several purposes: It gave the crew and the plane a specific identification and individuality, it helped the crew develop a sense of pride and belonging and it also boosted morale. If some member of the crew was especially talented, he did the painting but there were also men who specialized in designing and hand painting these lovely ladies. Notice that several of the pictures are almost exactly copied from the artwork of Alberto Vargas who was exceptionally popular during the War and drew many beautiful pinup girls (please see my 2 Vargas art Calendar Girl slide shows for more on Vargas and samples of his work). Thank you for watching this slide show. Please leave a comment if you enjoyed and be sure to recommend my shows to your friends! As usual, I hold no copyright to pictures or music used in this show.

Top 10 Famous Pinup Girls Posters
Top 10 Famous Pinup Girls Posters America's entrance into World War II back in 1941 triggered the golden age of pinups, pictures of smiling women in a range of clothing-challenged situations. The racy photos adorned lonely servicemen's lockers, the walls of barracks, and even the sides of planes. For the first time in its history, the US military unofficially sanctioned this kind of art: pinup pictures, magazines and calendars were shipped and distributed among the troops, often at government expense, in order to 'raise morale' and remind the young men what they were fighting for.

Nothing amazing, just a little nose art style painting for the Hot Rod Lawn Tractor. I know it's not the most masterful painting, but I think it's in keeping with the style of the old WWII Bombers. Wally got his first look at it this evening and he was happy with it and that's what matters. Thanks for taking a look.

Alberto Vargas (pin-up art)
Alberto Vargas (1896 -- 1982) Альберто Варгас (Alberto Vargas) - В 1940-х годах фамилия Варгас являлась синонимом живописи в стиле pin-up. Таким образом отдавалась дань уважения самому знаменитому художнику в данном направлении. Родившийся 9 февраля 1896 года в Перу, Альберт был сыном известного фотографа Макса Варгаса. Когда мальчику исполнилось тринадцать лет, отец стал самостоятельно обучать сына искусству живописи. Однажды, в 1911 году, сопровождая Макса в Париж, Альберто увидел журнал «La Vie Parisienne» с обложкой, созданной Рафаэлем Киркнером. Это изображение произвело на Альберто неизгладимое впечатление. Первое знакомство Варгаса с Америкой произошло в полдень на Бродвее, когда его буквально закружила огромная толпа девушек, работающих в офисах, спешащих на обед. Именно в тот момент Альберто решил, что посвятит всю свою жизнь прославлению красоты, грации и изящества американских девушек...

Nose art painted on WWII Military Airplanes
50 Color Vintage Photos of Nose Art Painted on WWII Military Airplanes. The inscription of art work on military planes dates to World War I, when paintings were usually extravagant company or unit insignia. However, regulations were put in place after the war to stymie the practice. As the United States entered World War II, nose art regulations were relaxed, or in many cases totally ignored. WWII would become the golden age of aircraft artistry. Artwork was typically painted on the nose of the plane, and the term "nose art" was coined. Nose art was a morale booster, and those in daily combat needed that boost. Facing the prospect of death on every flight, the crew deserved all of the encouragement, and smiles, available to them. The art on the plane unified the crew, and identified it, and made it unique from all of the aircraft in their unit or on their base.

PinUps WWII Nose Art
From the collection of Corpral Donald Elson, United States Army Air Corps. The following is a discription of this art form from the web site, "Military Aircraft Nose art" http://parentseyes.arizona.edu/militarynoseart/ww2-3.htm -- Nose art thrived in its infancy largely because servicemen had more freedom to alter their aircraft. Although the military never officially sanctioned nose art, it unofficially approved it as a morale-booster. It was a survival technique in a harsh environment. A little bit of levity and diversion goes a long way, and a measure of pride and enthusiasm comes from individual expression. Similarly, young men, who were generally under the age of twenty, could derive some comfort from images of women, mother, and home. Anne Josephine Hayward, a member of the American Red Cross Aero Club in England and a painter of nose art, challenges current objections to nose art as degrading to women or others: "Its purpose was worthy, to bolster military morale in a terrible time. The members of each crew came to feel that their plane and their painting were somehow special and would bring them luck, a safe return from hostile skies. The art may have been frivolous at times, but it was never anti-social" (Ethell, pp. 120-121). The characteristics of World War II aircraft art and the fact that it flourished during that time are indicators of that era. The art reflects the attitude of the people involved in the war--both at home and on the front, and, in the case of World War II, the attitude was positive (Davis v. 3, p. 3). The images--often patriotic and sometimes propagandistic--clearly reflected the spirit of the times, the all-out American effort to fight the good war. The combat crews were backed by a unified, supportive public. This was a war with a clear objective, and one in which the whole country challenged a known evil. At first look, the art that was a product of the war seems to be nothing more than silly names and irreverent images. But taken as a whole, the images indefinably suggest an underlying determination of the country to right a wrong. There were four main cultural sources of 1940s nose art. The first was the popular men's magazine Esquire, whose calendar page was the era's equivalent to the 1960s Playboy centerfold. The most duplicated nose art images were the product of Esquire's artist Alberto Vargas. Whether a Vargas copy or a Philip S. Brinkman original, pin-up art of the day was transferred to the side of an aircraft. Comic strip characters provided another source to be duplicated. Common images of the day were Burma, Madame Shoo Shoo, and Dragon Lady, characters from Milt Canniff's "Terry and the Pirates," and Miss Lace from "Male Call," a strip he created for the troops' daily newspaper. Dog Patch and Moonbeam McSwine were two images from Al Capp's "Li'l Abner" strip copied with regularity. The 56th FG and the 47th FS of the 15th FG, known as the "Dogpatchers" had an entire series of nose art creations based on "Li'l Abner" (Ethell, pp. 71-72). The line between art and life blurred as professional artists Canniff, Capp, Herblock, and Sgt. George Baker (creator of "Sad Sack") contributed art work in the form of posters for the military.

WWII Bomber Nose Art
This is one of the first slide shows I ever made but I like the topic. Originally I made four on Nose Art but the other three I can't find! During WWII it was popular for a crew to paint images on the noses of their aircraft. This was particularly popular with the crews of the big bombers. The planes frequently became known by the nose art that it wore. The art differed according to the tastes and often the reputation of the crew and provided not only identification of the aircraft but also added a bit of levity for men who were engaged in the very serious business of war. Artwork included animals and other images but by far the most popular images were beautiful, scantily clad females. Some guys became very good at designing and painting nose art and they themselves became very popular. Please notice along with the nose art, many of these planes have icons of bombs, crosses, etc on them. Those icons have to do with the number of missions that plane flew. One bomb, one mission. Today's military does not allow nose art so one rarely sees it. I hope you enjoy this show. I scanned many of the pictures from my library of books on the topic. Naturally, I do not own the copyright to the pictures or the music. Thank you for watching my slide shows. If you enjoy them, please tell your friends. about my shows. Be well! Nina

Romain Jerome Nose-Art DNA with CEO Manuel Emch
During BaselWorld 2014, Romain Jerome introduced its new Nose Art-DNA models. iW caught up with CEO of Romain Jerome, Manuel Emch, to discuss the new timepiece and its inspiration, a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress entitled the Pink Lady. The Nose Art-DNA is a tribute to 20th century flight and the artwork displayed on aircraft noses. Like other timepieces in the DNA collection, this model incorporates actual pieces of its inspiration; the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress. The particular aircraft utilized in the timepiece is the Pink Lady. In 1945, the aircraft took flight and served in missions throughout WWII with the US Army, based out of Great Britain. The aircraft flew further when, after the war, it took part in exploratory missions around the world. Recognized for it's Pink Lady pinup nose art, the aircraft inspired not only the material and construction of the timepiece, but a secret portrait on the caseback. Each of the limited 99 pieces of the Nose-Art DNA feature a pinup portrait, reminiscent of the famous Varga girls. Continue reading.
