Rolf Armstrong
The Dream Girl

1928

$23,500

About

This is an early and exceptional original pastel by Rolf Armstrong which was marketed under the name Dream Girl or Dream Girl II and reproduced as a calendar print by Brown & Bigelow. It first appeared in their 1928 calendar line. This is a defining and important early example by the "Father of American Pin-Up." Our gallery sold this in 2014 and are delighted to again offer it for sale! A printed Brown & Bigelow calendar print is included in the sale, though it is not pictured in this listing. Framed dimensions: 29" x 34" Image dimensions: 15" x 20"
