Robert Atkinson Fox
Pirate Pin-Up Girl with Treasure Chest

1930s

US$5,500Asking Price

About

This is a fantastic, original oil on canvas painting by Canadian-American artist and illustrator Robert Atkinson Fox. A playful example from the pin-up genre, this painting features a pirate girl with a sword in hand while she triumphantly sits on top of her chest full of treasures. The background features rolling rocky hills, calm waters, and a boat full of marauders making their way towards shore. The pirate girl was a particularly popular theme during the 1920s and 1930s. The devil-may-care sensibility of pirate life appealed to flappers and adventurers coming of age during the Roaring 20s, and the lawless pursuit of gold was a potent fantasy for many during the Great Depression. This painting has been signed by the artist in the lower right corner. It is housed in a handsome gold painted and carved wood frame. This painting comes from the collection of the esteemed illustration art collector Norman Platnick. Framed dimensions: 31" x 34.5" Image dimensions: 23" x 26.5"
