The first great pin-up photographer was Alfred Cheney Johnston. He had the enviable task of photographing the beautiful young ladies of the Ziegfeld Follies and other dancers at the time and while his work was risqué, the people loved it! His images are coveted by collectors today, especially those such as this one that show some skin of the his beautiful subjects. This is a massive image in great shape and stamped by the famous photographer on the back. One of the first images by Johnston we have ever handled and it is an absolute work of art that captures one of the girls from the famed Ziegfeld Follies and appears to be actress Helen Ware. One of the finest images from Johnston we have ever handled.
