Estimate: $10,000.00 +

Popular American pin-up artist, known as T. N. Thompson, who created some of the most enduring calendar imagery of the 1950s. Original pin-up calendar mixed media artwork entitled 'She'll Put Life in Old Death Valley,' depicting a topless Marilyn Monroe bent over in a cowgirl outfit, accomplished by Jerry T. N. Thompson in oil, pastel, and pencil on 19.25 x 26 artist's board. This artwork was used for the February image of Thompson's 1954 'Studio Sketches' pin-up calendar; it is based on Marilyn Monroe's 'Coming Out on Top' pose from a photo shoot with Laszlo Willinger. Thompson's 1954 calendar also featured a portrayal of Monroe based on the even more famous 'Golden Dreams' picture. Double-matted and framed to an overall size of 28.75 x 35.5. In fine condition, with small tack holes to the top corners.
