Come Hither

26 11 2011

Not to state the obvious, but Egyptian themes lent themselves particularly well to the world of pin-up art.  Pictured here is “Egyptian Night” from the 1930s by popular artist Rolf Armstrong.  A blonde Cuacasian woman is set like a jewel amid rich decorative objects, with a stunning evening view of the Pyramids in the background.  Is she a trophy bride, or victim of the slave trade?  Relaxing in satisfied anticipation, or slumped in an opiate induced stupor?

I love this piece! Then again I have an affection for pin up art.
