Vintage pin-up girl posters that are valued today often feature such celebrities as Marilyn Monroe, as seen in the celebrity photograph, 'Marilyn Monroe, Poolside' by Frank Worth, although many others were also featured.
Although it isn't the primary purpose of this art category, many works of vintage pin-up girl posters are highly seductive prints. These pop art images like 'Bus Stop' by Art Frahm and 'Surfer Girl' by Scott Westmoreland are two examples of how these works transitioned from celebrity photographs to the pin-up girl that modern audiences are familiar with.
