Winners, A Girl And Her Dog

Winners, A Girl And Her Dog by Hungarian Painter Jules Erbit (1889 – 1968); a pastel painter known for his female portraits and calendar illustrations.

This is a charming and elegant pin up girl genre portrait of a beautiful young lady with blonde hair and wearing green blouse with yellow and orange stripe trim along the collar and sleeves; holding her pet dog.

On the bottom of the artwork is the word WINNERS, which may indicate that she and her dog were involved or were part of some sort of competition.

The background of the painting is composed of beautiful blue hues that are highlighted with light green, rose, violet and white giving the the image a look of floating in the clouds, which transitions down to a sort of floral pattern in the bottom front which is a very light blue accented with a few other blue tones and light brown.

Erbit was born in 1889 inBudapest Hungary and studied at the Budapest Academy of Art and Munich, Germany and Paris, France; he also worked for the sculptor George Zala for several years.

Erbit then carved several statues for Budapest’s parks and also sculpted the bust of the last monarch of Hungary, King Charles IV.

During the communist take over of Hungary Erbit fled to New York City and established a portrait studio; then shortly later moved to California, where he continued as a portrait painter in Hollywood and Santa Barbara.

Though there is not a great deal of details known on the life and work of Erbit; it is known that he was one of the most prolific pin up artist between the 1930s to the 1950s, specializing in the use of pastels and was known as the master of pastels.

Unlike most other artist of the time, such as Alberto Vargas and Gil Elvgrin; Erbit’s pin ups, focused on the glamour aspect of the genre featuring, beautiful woman in gowns in elegant poses; and like his contemporaries, much of his art was published Brown & Bigelow, C. Moss and other publishers.
