Filthy Gorgeous Auction Recap: Women’s Curves Are Landscape Of A Man’s Mind, January 16, 2015.

The January 17, 2015 auction was a compilation of curvy women who knew that in life, as in art, there is beauty in curves. Curves offer many interesting angles and men do not just discover the curves, they uncover them. In this auction, the bidder had the opportunity to purchase 35mm slides and 120mm negatives taken by Penthouse founder Bob Guccione, as well as Suze Randall, and Philip Mund. This auction also showcases models such as Avril Lund, Cheryl Rixon, Tamara Mindas, and  Sasha Vinni.

Featuring 250 items, the auction had 32 bidders with a total of 244 bids. The highest hammer price item sold in this auction was lot #240, an original Sex Totem Pole cartoon by Art Cummings, at $175. From Dr. Seuss to Penthouse magazine, Art Cummings was a renowned illustrator and cartoonist. Born in 1919, he was an early contributor to the left wing newspaper “Tribune”. He took over the illustration art for the “Essence of Parliament” from A.W. Lloyd in 1953. He is believed to be the only cartoonist to have caricatured every British Prime Minister from Churchill to Blair. He was a brilliant communicator, humorist and political satirist.The Berndt Toast Gang, which is the Long Island chapter of the National Cartoonists Society, called Art “a quiet genius”.

While each piece in this timeless collection is stunning, my editor’s pick went to lot #55, an original, erotic, and unpublished 35mm slide featuring Janet Dunphy taken by photographer Bob Guccione in 1972.

Janet Dunphy was a piano playing Pet that flew from London to Yugoslavia to New York and back again during promotional tours for the magazine’s ever expanding interests. Barely 19 years old at the time of her photoshoot, this music fan was a notable 35-25-37 which made a career in modeling and promotion, high on her scale of priorities. This one-of-a-kind slide is guaranteed to be an original and delivered directly from the Filthy Gorgeous Media archives. Each item will be packaged with an item specific certificate of authenticity and each certificate is customized according to lot and signed by the CEO of Filthy Gorgeous Media.
