Gouache on board 40 x 48 cm Illustration for a story Edwin Georgi was an American illustrator notable for his dynamic pin-up images. Even though he did not pursue his art career, his talent doesn’t leave indifferent. Indeed, he was a leader of what we call the “pretty-girl” movement in the fifties. Mostly self- taught, his style distinguishes itself with direct light, warm shadows and sparkling colors.
