These images are from an artist I’m just learning about: Jean-Gabriel Domergue. Apparently he claims to have invented the “pin-up”. His style changed a lot over the years (he got started in the 1920’s) but I’m currently obsessed with his ideal of the “Parisienne”, which I see as a ’50’s interpretation of “La Belle Epoque”. He had a villa in Cannes which I intend to visit next time I’m there and I will write more about what I discover.
