First Love

By Alberto Vargas
About the image
This painting is historic in that it was the very first Varga Girl ever published by Esquire magazine. It appeared as a gatefold in the October 1940 issue. This blonde beauty, whispering words of passion while lying on a bed of satin, introduced our nation to Alberto Vargas' legendary all-American girl, images that would become a part of our culture for many decades.
