Jean-Gabriel Domergue (1889-1962), Inventor of the Pin-Up?

Jean-Gabriel Domergue (1889-1962) "was a French painter specialising
in portraits of Parisian women. In the 1920's Domergue invented a new type of woman : thin, airy, elegant, with a swanlike neck. 'I invented the pin-up, he later claimed."
