American Woman – Good Girl Art

Good Girl Art illustrates generally the covers of comic books, pulp magazines and crime fiction published from the 40’s to the 60’s. They could be referred to as what we call today “sensual”, whereas present day counterparts would be overtly erotic.

They were not really “Good Girls”, but they were good girls to see and to wish for.
Illustrators of Good Girl Art: Rolf Armstrong, Bill Ward, Matt Baker and others.
You can notice that the female ideal back then was quite different from the girls we call fashion models today.

They were substantially chunkier, with wider waist line and big breasts, at that time called “headlights”.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the video below, some examples of Good Girl Art. Some of the male fantasies on women in the past did not change much, as you can check out the YouTube posting.

Here's what Brief and to the Point has to present!
