A talented photographer who seems to have captured the essence of our passion...





"This showed up on the Boston Museum of Fine Arts website.
If you look carefully, you can see lacey ruffles showing from the long bloomers from under the beautifully laid out dress. Don't recall the artist."







David M.:

"I think the below painting may well be by John Singer Sargent, judging by its style and content.
His subjects appear to have slim features and long necks. To the right is an example of his work."

John Singer Sargent, American Painter 1856-1925

Jack writes:

"Here are (three) illustrations by the classic pinup artist, Enoch Bolles, who worked from the 1910s to 1940s.  By most accounts his fashion sense (he also did fashion illustration) was smarter than any other pinup artist.  There is more of (his work) at my flickr site at:"

Original French Pen & Ink Drawing + Watercolor, 1921
Fernand Couderc

 Risque Art Deco Era Watercolor. Marvelous original artwork on paper; pen and ink + watercolor of entwined, stockinged legs, pointing straight  up, surrounded by flower petal-like layers of frou-frou lingerie. A great image for the art lover with a leg, lingerie, and panty fetish - love the garters!

Couderc's illustrative work appeared in popular magazines, journals, advertising and posters in France during 1920s.

 David M. (6 pictures):

"I recently come across some sumptuous images of 19th century women by James Tissot (1836-1902). He certainly had a way of enhancing his subject's femininity through the use of petticoats. Unfortunately I had to crop them quite severely, but the originals are freely available on the WWW."
