ALBERTO VARGAS "Vargas Vanities"

Playing Cards Collection

1896 - 1982

In the 1940s, he became famous as “Varga” as the creator of iconic World War II-era pin-up art, known as “Varga Girls." During the war, pin-up art was a part of GI's lifestyle, and the Varga Girls inspired much of the nose art.  In the early 1950s, Vargas' own deck of pin-up playing cards, "Vargas Vanities," was issued after the war.
