The Hottest Pin-Up Girls from the 1940s
The pin-up art as a genre has its specific roots and has to be perceived in a broader context. Aside from the strict treatment of sexuality through the art history, the pin-up developed fully during the 2oth century modernism. This phenomenon grew simultaneously with the changing social circumstances and a general need for more freedom regardless of the prescribed canons of morality. The provocative aesthetic was an effect of advertising and the consumerist culture in general. Since it was produced for the male gaze exclusively, pin-up is often overlooked and considered patriarchal and degrading for women.
Pin-up girls are models with widely distributed, mass produced photo spreads, usually on both sides of the page, that soldiers, teenagers, and many others would display by "pinning" them up on the wall. The term was coined in and became very popular throughout the 40s and beyond. These pin-up girls were beautiful and sexy, and this list has the hottest of the s pin-up girls, with pictures. These pin-ups were printed in magazines, newspapers, post cards, lithographs, and some girls even got their own posters.
