Photographer: Wingate Paine (American,1915 – 1987) – During the early 1960’s Wingate Paine was one of the most successful advertising/fashion photographers in New York commanding large fees for his work and perhaps second only to Richard Avedon and Irving Penn in the New York photography world at that time. In the mid 1960’s he turned his focus to the female nude and female beauty in general utilizing both still images and motion picture film. His work is often compared to British photographer Sam Haskins a contemporary of Paine’s from whom he undoubtably drew inspiration. Later in life he retired from photography to concentrate on sculpture, Hatha yoga and eventually became a spiritual teacher and author. Paine died in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1987.Date Of Negative: circa early to mid 1960’s
Vikki Dougan: Did she inspire the drawing of Jessica Rabbit?
Maybe….or maybe not…
Her back and lingerie might just inspire a Presentation Outfit:
dievca might just have to pull out the Agent Provocateur ‘Baroness” silk slip in Navy.
The opening act for the Big Bad VooDoo Daddy:
An electric Ukulele and a very passionate artist.
All dievca could think after his set was that he needed put his hands in an ice bucket from the assertive movements…(note: dievca couldn’t add her little clips on WordPress)
A second Gem – the Venue:
Sony Hall is located in a space that is one of New York’s most celebrated historic venues, previously known as The Diamond Horseshoe. Established in 1938 by theatrical showman and impresario Billy Rose, the Diamond Horseshoe was known for its lavish dinner theaters, vaudeville-style reviews, and chorus of showgirls known as “Billy Rose’s long-stemmed beauties.” The venue is widely recognized as giving Gene Kelly his start and was celebrated in the 1945 feature film “Billy Rose’s Diamond Horseshoe” starring Betty Grable. “Queen of the Night,” the theater show that became one of the longest running shows in Off-Broadway history, was the space’s most recent occupant. Blue Note and Sony have preserved much of the classic look and feel of the venue with select renovations. ~their website

And Big Bad VooDoo Daddy? Excellent as ever!
One of the nicknames of the planet Venus is “the Morning Star”. It’s also known as the Evening Star. Of course, Venus isn’t a star at all, so why does Venus have these nicknames?
The orbit of Venus is inside the orbit of Earth. Unlike the outer planets, Venus is always relatively close to the Sun in the sky. When Venus is on one side of the Sun, it’s trailing the Sun in the sky and brightens into view shortly after the Sun sets, when the sky is dark enough for it to be visible. When Venus is at its brightest, it becomes visible just minutes after the Sun goes down. This is when Venus is seen as the Evening Star.
When Venus is on the other side of the Sun, it leads the Sun as it travels across the sky. Venus will rise in the morning a few hours before the Sun. Then as the Sun rises, the sky brightens and Venus fades away in the daytime sky. This is Venus the Morning Star.
Lucifer ‘light-bringer’, corresponding to the Greek name, Ἑωσφόρος. ‘dawn-bringer’ is a Latin name for the planet Venus in its morning appearances and is often used for mythological and religious figures associated with the planet. Due to the unique movements and discontinuous appearances of Venus in the sky, the mythology surrounding these figures often involved a fall from the heavens to earth or the underworld.
Interpretations of a similar term in the Hebrew Bible, translated in the King James Version as “Lucifer”, led to a Christian tradition of applying the name Lucifer, and its associated stories of a fall from heaven, to Satan.
Lucifer the ‘light-bringer’.
