Peruvian artist Joaquin Alberto Vargas y Chávez, who back then went by the moniker Varga, was the illustrator for a 1945 calendar issued by Esquire Magazine. We just love the way the women are drawn, and the classic pin-up style always draws us in. Enjoy this trip down memory lane. Thanks to Pulp International for the images. What did you make of 1945??

  1. Thanks for the reference, it really is a great calendar, all the illustrations are beautiful!!

    Keep your eyes peeled, if you like this you may like future stories, we’re going through a fascination with Rolf Armstrong.

  2. Loving this picture…Vargas girls are the best.


  3. Vargas was with Playboy in the fifties and I always loved looking at his works. Also copied him in order to get the poses. Now looking back I think he was too sleek and made women plastic beauties.
    Thanks for the memories.
