Note: That this painting submitted as sample work to B&B, the signature was on the letter on the ground, lower right. Original Carlyle pinup of the same late 40's period, from the same collection that I found and bought more than 22 years ago. Top Elvgren experts, Art Amise and Daniel Vancas agreed that this art collection with the many Elvgren originals of the same period including Elvgren's original "Getting Posted" that this demonstration painting was based was one of the last great cache' of Elvgren works to be found intact all dating of the late 1940's. Daniel Vancas also owns the original Elvgren easel and the Elvgren tm, art signature brand as approved and protected by by the Federal Court Order 2001. Elvgren painted more than 450 pinup paintings.
This painting is very Rare, as about 40% or more Elvgren paintings have been thrown away and never will be found. Whole ad and calendar company art warehouse though away happened several times in the late 1950's and 1960. This included many Elvgren paintings. Lost forever in landfills, this one survived, and no one knew!
This great one has been found in 1997 by Daniel Vancas and presented here for the very first time. Great condition for age, and typical of Elvgren and other artist pinup paintings with stable oil crazing.
Painting has been only lightly cleaned. A Rare resale from private owner after apx 70 years!

(C) from the Vancas/Elvgren art archive, 1994, 1997 all rights res. ELVGREN PAINTS A DEMONSTRATION WITH CARLYLE - ORIGINAL PAINTINGS FOUND! ELVGREN Liked this image and painted it several times.
This Pinup as featured in the Photography Magazine. These are two Pinup paintings both originals painted 1946-47 24x30 oil on canvas. Then he paints in collaboration an instructional demonstration piece with a contemporary artist at the same time and group, with fellow calendar artist named Carlyle. To put this visual evidence together, here are the photos by order of collection shown. All paintings are oil on canvas and 24x30, and vintage made late 1940's.
It is Estimated about 40% of all of the Elvgren paintings were thrown away. (This painting I still unfound). The rare Original Elvgren painting used for the B&B calendars that I found, owned and resold at the same time. Note: That this painting submitted to B&B, the signature was on the letter on the ground, lower right.
Original Carlyle pinup of the same late 40's period, from the same collection that I found and bought 20 years ago. The skill level is less, technique, style and color pallet are all different from the subject painting though all were painted at the same time period and found as collected together since 1949/1950.As shown is the original Elvgren in comparison to the original instructional demonstration piece. I believe ELVGREN was helping an artist name Carlyle, most likely done while he was working at the ad firm Gross or while giving instructions at the Chicago Art Institute school. Carlyle also submits art to Calendar company B&B with Elvgren collection of same time period.
(See painting # 6) Carlyle confirms that Elvgren assisted him in his own signature with notation, "With apologies to Elvgren", Carlyle, signs on the same letter location. I conclude that Carlyle was apologizing as he was NOT the main artist for the work, nor was he capable of making such a fine work without the demonstration and assistance painting of Elvgren guiding him. Historically, Elvgren did make multiple copies of paintings and teaching, guiding and even completing other artist work. This has been already established in the historical record, personal accounts and books.This I also confirmed with my longtime friend and client, Art Amise, who was both the first true collector and personal friend of Gil Elvgren. Art Amise as well as another early collector who personally showed me what was commissioned from Elvgren of repainting work that he did for the calendar Companies. Sometimes they were not signed, or sometimes these artists could use a alias name. This was common practice with illustrators who may not want to conflict with their exclusive contracts with advertisers and calendar companies.
This placed Carlyle's art with and in connection to B&B and Gil Elvgren at the time. Even the most casual viewer with little experience can see that there is a striking difference in skill and ability of these two Carlyle paintings, and could not be painted by the same artist, unless with a lot of professional help. This grouping of original Elvgren paintings was bought by one person directly from the Ad Company shortly after, circa 1949/50.
Decades later, I acquired them all, still as a group from the very same family. The group included Elvgren and Carlyle paintings. As you can see this demonstration painting is exceptionally good and could only be ELVGREN demonstration work, helping Carlyle, as Elvgren was known to help younger artists while demonstrating his painting techniques even directly on their canvases as well. Since I owned both of these paintings and have the 25 years experience and expertise working with, restoring, publishing, and replicated 240 Elvgren Pinup paintings, I can certify that the upper half of this Pinup body, all of her face and hair could only be painted exclusively by Elvgren, and with the Elvgren color palette, not the Carlyle color palette.
This opinion is further supported by comparison to a unique original painting that was painted by Carlyle alone (without the master artist Elvgren's assistance) that was from the same period and originally bought with the collection of Elvgren originals including the very same Getting Posted, Perfection, Elegance and several other original Elvgren paintings of the 1946-48 period; one can visually conclude that Carlyle could not paint the "Getting Posted" demonstration painting without the assistance of Elvgren. The collection of the art found together continues to cement this obvious connection between the two paintings and the two artists at the same time and period. This was about 20 years ago. After my client, unfortunately, passed away, I acquired this demonstration painting from his wife to offer again. I have enjoyed it for a couple of years now and this is my first offering of this painting in 20 years.
