Alberto Vargas: Works from the Max Vargas Collection Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first book on the works of legendary glamour and pin-up artist Alberto Vargas in a decade, and it is also the first to include a generous selection of his vivid original drawings and his finest work for Playboy magazine. The family controls publishing rights to all of the Playboy material, most of which have not appeared in print since they first ran in the magazine in the 1960s. Along with these highly sought-after pictures the book will feature early unpublished works from the 1920s, Hollywood portraits from the 1930s, unpublished watercolors rendered for Esquire, the celebrated Legacy Nudes, and more.

Synopsis:

This stunning, authorized collection of works by legendary illustrator Vargas includes a large number of previously unpublished paintings and drawings. This is the first book on Vargas in more than a decade.

Reid Stewart Austin is the author of Alberto Vargas: The Authorized Biography (1978) as well as Varga: The Esquire Years (1987), The Classic Pin-up Art of George Petty (1998), and several articles on Vargas for Playboy and other national magazines.
