Top Elvgren experts, Art Amise and Daniel Vancas agreed that this art collection with the many Elvgren originals of the same period including Elvgren's original "Getting Posted" that this demonstration painting was based was one of the last great cache' of Elvgren works to be found intact all dating of the late 1940's.

Elvgren painted more than 450 pinup paintings. This painting is very Rare, as about 40% or more Elvgren paintings have been thrown away and never will be found. whole ad and calendar company art warehouse though away happened several times in the late 1950's and 1960. This included many Elvgren paintings. Lost forever in landfills, this one survived, and no one knew!
This great one has been found by Daniel Vancas and presented here for the very first time.
Gallery, auction, and private collector resale values have substantiated that this is a great price WELL under its Insurance replacement value.
Great condition for age, and typical of Elvgren and other artist pinup paintings with stable oil crazing. Painting has been only lightly cleaned. A Rare resale from private owner after apx 70 years years!

C OF A and LETTER OF OPINION BY DANIEL VANCAS SUPPORTING THE PROBABLE WORK OF ELVGREN
FAN MAIL aka GETTING POSTED circa 1946-47 (c)oil 24x30
ELVGREN PAINTS A DEMONSTRATION WITH CARLYLE - ORIGINAL PAINTINGS FOUND!
ELVGREN Liked this image and painted it several times. Note where he signed the painting in this photograph (on the fence rail) and where he signed the one most commonly published (on the letter on the ground) and the very one I also owned and sold. Clearly this shows that he had painted more than one painting known as "Fan Mail" or Getting Posted".
With this painting I believe he recreates his 1940s, “Getting Posted” aka “FAN MAIL” A Farmer's daughter who has too many suitors! This Pinup as featured in the Photography Magazine. Circa 1946-47. These are two Pinup paintings both originals painted 1946-47 24x30 oil on canvas. Then he paints in collaboration an instructional demonstration piece with an contemporary artist in the same time and group, with fellow calendar artist named Carlyle.
To put this visual evidence together, here are the photos by order of collection shown. All paintings are oil on canvas and 24x30, and vintage made late 1940's. All were sold to one collector as a group from the B&B calendar company rep about 1950, which was a common practice to get rid of paintings after use, if unsold that would routinely be throw them away. It is Estimated about 40% of all of the Elvgren paintings were thrown away.
Art photo in order of appearance as follows:
Photo # 2,. Featured Photography Magazine photo of Elvgren with the model signing 1 0f 2 paintings he made. Circa 1946-47. Note: that he signs this painting on the fence rail. (This painting I still unfound)
Photo # 1 (detail) 3., and 4. All of the vintage subject demonstration (3rd) painting by Elvgren/Carlyle circa 1947-48.
Photo # 5. The Original Elvgren painting used for the B&B calendars that I found, owned and resold.
Note: that this painting submitted to B&B, the signature was on the letter on the ground, lower rights.
Photo # 6. Original Carlyle pinup of the same late 40's period, from the same collection that I found and bought 20 years ago. The skill level is less, technique, style and color pallet are all different from the subject painting though all were painted at the same time period and found as collected together since 1949/1950.
Note: I am also offering this painting for sale.
As shown is the original Elvgren in comparison to the original instructional demonstration piece. I believe ELVGREN was helping an artist name Carlyle, most likely done while he was working at the ad firm Gross or while giving instructions at the Chicago Art Institute school. Carlyle also submits art to Calendar company B&B with Elvgren collection of same time period. (See painting # 6) Carlyle confirms that Elvgren assisted him in his own signature with notation, "With apologies to Elvgren", Carlyle", signs on the same letter location. I conclude that Carlyle was apologizing as he was NOT the main artist for the work, nor was he capable of making such a fine work without the demonstration and assistance painting of Elvgren guiding him. Historically, Elvgren did make multiple copies of paintings and teaching, guiding and even completing other artist work. This has been already established in the historical record, personal accounts and books. This I also confirmed with my longtime friend and client, Art Amise, who was both the first true collector and personal friend of Gil Elvgren. Art Amise as well as another early collector who personally showed me what was commissioned from Elvgren of repainting work that he did for the calendar Companies. Sometimes they were not signed, or sometimes these artists could use a alias name. This was common practice with illustrators who may not want to conflict with their exclusive contracts with advertisers and calendar companies.
In the 1990s I found a cache of Vintage ELVGREN paintings, including both! Mostly Elvgren with this Carlyle. The original Elvgren “Fan Mail” and a unique Carlyle painting (Pinup Girl on Green Couch, also shown for comparison) At that time I also found the same "Getting Posted" image as a Carlyle/Elvgren demonstration Pinup also the same size, 24x30, oil on canvas.
This grouping of original Elvgren paintings was bought by one person directly from the Ad Company shortly after, circa 1949/50. Decades later, I acquired them all, still as a group from the very same family. The group included Elvgren and Carlyle paintings. As you can see this demonstration painting is exceptionally good and could only be ELVGREN demonstration work, helping Carlyle, as Elvgren was known to help younger artists while demonstrating his painting techniques even directly on their canvases as well.
Since I owned both of these paintings and have the 25 years experience and expertise working with, restoring, publishing, and replicated 240 Elvgren Pinup paintings, I can certify that the upper half of this Pinup body, all of her face and hair could only be painted exclusively by Elvgren, and with the Elvgren color palette, not the Carlyle color palette. This opinion is further supported by comparison to an unique original painting that was painted by Carlyle alone (without the master artist Elvgren's assistance ) that was from the same period and originally bought with the collection of Elvgren originals including the very same “Getting Posted”, “Perfection”, “Elegance” and several other original Elvgren paintings of the 1946-48 period; one can visually conclude that Carlyle could not paint the "Getting Posted" demonstration painting without the assistance of Elvgren. The collection of the art found together continues to cement this obvious connection between the two paintings and the two artists at the same time and period.
A short time after I found this collection, I privately sold both The 1940's original Elvgren published original and this 1940's demonstration painting of “Getting Posted” aka "Fan Mail", paintings. This was about 20 years ago. After my client unfortunately passed away, I acquired this demonstration painting from his wife to offer again. I have enjoyed it for a couple years now and this is my first offering of this painting in 20 years.
With it's purchase, I will sign this review and expert opinion that this painting offered is a Elvgren demonstration or instructional collaboration painting between Elvgren and Carlyle, circa 1947-48.
Yours truly, Daniel Vancas
