Nothing could light up the face of a pilot, a sailor, more readily than a beautiful girl back home. Pin-Up Art was essential to the war effort. The sweetly sexy images were proving that if you really wanted to give something to the boys – send in the girls. This illustrated lecture by Louise Cella Caruso will bring to light the pretty, shapely girls reminiscent of the sweethearts the GIs left behind, the images of the men painted on the sides of their aircraft – images that carried the American popular culture onto foreign shores.
