Whatever Happened to the Pinup Aesthetic?

Posted by Martin Poulter on 31 January 2004

What happened to this female ideal that was everywhere in the middle of the last century?

Okay, the bodies are a bit unfeasible and I don’t expect a real cowgirl to show that much thigh, but these paintings of women are a lot more realistic and womanly than the images we’re bombarded with nowadays. Plus, there’s a cheekiness that has been lost: a particular wide-cheekboned naughty smile that has been given up today in favour of the porn-star pout.
