Alberto Vargas  1896 – 1982

Vargas early works

Early works of Alberto Vargas dating from about 1915 to September 1940. There is some overlap with the "Esquire Varga Girl" images.  One example is "Reflection in Mirror".  This painting with the mirror removed was purposed for Esquire magazine February 1941 gatefold and was rejected because it is "too athletic and realistically muscled".  Anna Mae Clift was the model and judged to be “to old”.  But the same painting was used for the November 1944 gatefold.  Proof that Vargas was right and Mr. Smart, the publisher of Esquire, was wrong again.
