A lovely calendar used pin-up pastel by K.O. Munson from the late 1940s to early 50s. A fresh faced red headed bathing beauty finds herself in ship shape in this nautically themed classic pin-up entanglement. Work is handsomely framed in a unique shadowbox configuration and has press sniping printers crop marks in the matting designating that it was a calendar print used commission, likely for the Brown & Bigelow Calendar Company of Saint Paul Mn. As pin-up art has caught on with collectors this artist has like many others enjoyed new high water marks at auction, in 2009 a pin-up pastel by K.O. Munson realized $16,730 at a well advertised national auction.
