Famous Pin-Up Artists list containing modern pin-up artists, vintage pin-up artists, and classic pin-up artists. Pin-up girls artists were individuals who created mass produced art of sexy, beautiful, attractive women at least partially undressed (if not nude). The art was often "pinned up" on a wall or in a locker, etc., hence the name. Posters and calendars were two of the most popular mediums. While actual photos were common, artists such as the ones on this list drew idealized women by hand for their fans to drool over. The women could be fashion models, glamor models, actresses of even beautiful figments of the artist's imagination. Pin-up art arguably peaked in the 1940's, and its style has been emulated ever since. In World War II, pin-up art could be found on the sides of planes, and Betty Grable's famous pin-up photo inside every locker.
