David Wright

LANCE-BOMBARDIER DAVID WRIGHT Illustrator and artist, photographed for the Sketch during his time with the Royal Artillery in 1942. Wright was commissioned in January 1941 to produce a series of illustrations for fortnightly publication The Sketch, eventually producing 169 prints and one cover. David Wright's lovelies, depicting glamorous ladies wearing sheer clothing, or in various states of undress, were modelled on his wife Esme, and proved to be an enormous success, establishing Wright as the most prominent pin-up artist of the World War II period.
