This is a really fantastic early pin up by George Petty. She is talking on the telephone and it says at the bottom of the print "I told the electric company where to head in". It is a really neat piece. I didn’t want to take it out of the frame to clean the glass, I will leave that to the buyer. The frame is old and the back of the picture is very thin paper. George Petty was well known for his pin up work.

George Brown Petty IV (April 27, 1894 – July 21, 1975) was an American pin-up artist. His pin-up art appeared primarily in Esquire and Fawcett Publications’s True but was also in calendars marketed by Esquire, True and Ridgid Tool Company. Petty’s Esquire gatefolds originated and popularized the magazine device of centerfold spreads. Reproductions of his work were widely rendered by military artists as nose art decorating warplanes during the Second World War, including the Memphis Belle, known as "Petty Girls".
