I recently got another WWII poster with artwork by Arias Bernal produced for the Office of Inter-American Affairs to keep Latin American sympathies firmly with the Allies.

This one is really a calendar, but it's close enough to a poster to share here.

The caption reads "America Libre". It shows the countries of the Americas personified as a woman, who has broken her shackles. I presume this was produced immediately after WWII. Though there is no date, as this particular specimen never had the dated monthly calendar pages attached.

Here is another recent acquisition, a Mexican propaganda poster promoting the CTM (Confederación de Trabajadores de México), a confederation of trade unions that was once a potent political force.

According to my online research, the poster is from 1947:

Beautiful image here, Deke.

I wonder if this piece was also ever produced in a larger poster size, too.

nice pieces Deke

since you like pin-up stuff, here is my Rolf Armstrong circa 1940.
I used to have quite a bit of original pin-up art, including Elvgren, Mozert, Macpherson, Dribben and others



this is by Robert Kalifutti (name may not be spelled correctly, piece is locked away also)

That Rolf Armstrong piece is great, Rich!

I have recently started branching out from posters and dipping my toe a bit into original magazine cover and political cartoon art (still stuff from Mexico). I should share more of it on APF. I haven't bought any original pin-up art though. Those prices tend to be above my typical price range in any case :)

What did you do with your other art?  Was it inventory you had as a dealer, or a personal collection?

You should know Dr Lakra then, a famous Mexican artists drawing over magazine covers and images.  His studio in Oaxacca is full of vintage magazine, pinups, and posters - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GP4RByeO0i4
