Lady in Red

By Alberto Vargas
About the image
"Lady in Red" reminds us of the carefree times that existed in this country before America entered World War II. The unique style of her striking red dress - a complete improvisation by Vargas - would have been the envy of any of her contemporaries.  Although references might be made to Betty Grable, the painting that was the basis for this print was completed prior to her famous long-legged pin-up.
