Arnold Armitage (British-American,1899-1991) oil on fiberboard illustration art painting featuring an attractive Calendar Girl on skis with Irish Setter, foreground, in a snowy landscape setting. The image appeared in the 1946 Altes Beer advertising calendar. Signed "Armitage" lower right. Unframed. 30"W x 24"H. Circa 1946. Note: British born Arnold Armitage moved to the United States in 1925 and settled in Hollywood, where he secured a job designing billboards for the Foster and Kleiser company. He would go on to produce billboards for a number of American companies. In about 1940, Armitage began a series of "pretty girl" paintings for the calendar market. While not strictly pin-ups, these works were similar to the work of Gil Elvgren. Armitage's "pretty girls" were well received in both the United States and England. Source: Charles G. Martignette and Louis K. Meisel, "The Great American Pin-Up."
