From the “Running Into Six Figures Series”, by Earl Moran (1893-1984)

Earl Moran Nude 6

One of the most prolific and diverse pin-up artists – as well as one of the most important – Earl Moran worked with a variety of models (including Marilyn Monroe for 4 years, developing a lasting friendship with her in process).

Our print, which appears to be from the original portfolio of the “Running Into Six Figures” series, is a lovely nude (model’s name is unknown) depicted in shadows.

Here’s more information on Earl Moran:

The print came matted but unframed, and in a large plastic sleeve.  It had clearly been framed at one point, but somewhere the print endured some soiling (looks like a grease stain on the back but doesn’t show through on the front), and the bottom left hand corner was bent, leaving a crease.  The paper behind the picture was attached via cellophane tape, but has no grease stain, so appears to have been added after the fact.

Price:  $85.  State of Maine sales tax of 5.5% also applies.

# Available:  one

Size:  14″ high x 11″ wide, not including the matting.

Approximate Age:  Unknown, appears to be an original reproduction.

Defects, Nicks and/or Blemishes:  Several noted.  The print came matted but unframed, and in a large plastic sleeve.  It had clearly been framed at one point, but somewhere the print endured some soiling (looks like a grease stain on the back but doesn’t show through on the front), and the bottom left hand corner was bent, leaving a crease.  The paper behind the picture was attached via cellophane tape, but has no grease stain, so appears to have been added after the fact.

The white shading that shows in the photos is from the camera flash and is not seen in the print itself.

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – it was his baby.

He loved me, and oh how I loved him.
