Jean-Gabriel Domergue (1889-1962) – french painter specialising in portraits of Parisian women.
Domergue invented a new type of woman : thin, airy, elegant, with a swanlike neck and wide seductive eyes which gaze upon the world with longing.
“I invented the pin-up” he later claimed.
He went on to paint approximately 3,000 portraits.
