Elle était ronde, rousse et très joyeuse... Voici Hilda, la première pin-up ronde illustrée, star des calendriers américains pendant 30 ans, et tombée aux oubliettes !
This reminded me of my mom in California. The beach was a favorite spot.
I would be happy looking like this...
One of Duane Bryers' incredible Hilda paintings done specifically for Bigelow & Brown's Hilda calendars. These were illustrated between 1957 and 1970 although Mr. Bryers continued to do original paintings for the calendars until the early 1980s. These were all primarilly rendered in watercolor employing the service of a number of "plus-size" models, but more often than not, he used only his imagination of "Hilda."
