The publishing rights to the artist's work have been tied up in litigation for the past ten years. Now, the family is finally able to release a generous new collection of Vargas paintings and drawings, many of which are little known or previously unpublished. The famous "Varga Girls" from Playboy are here, of course, but alongside these highly sought-after pictures are early unseen works from the 1920s, unpublished watercolours rendered for Esquire, the celebrated Legacy Nudes, and much more. The accompanying essay and captions are by Vargas biographer Reid Stewart Austin, whose knowledge of the artist's work is second to none."@en ;
