Camille Clifford (1885-1971) aka The Gibson Girl (photo: Bassano, London, 1906)

Many "pin ups" were photographs of celebrities who were considered sex symbols. Others were artwork, often depicting idealized versions of what some thought particularly a beautiful or attractive woman should look like. An early example of the latter type was the Gibson girl, drawn by Charles Dana Gibson. [Feb 2007]
