 Pin-Up  refer to drawings, paintings, and other illustrations done in emulation of   photos  . The term was first attested to in English in 1941;  however, the practice is documented back at least to the 1890s.
 pin-ups were artwork depicting idealized versions of what some thought a particularly beautiful or attractive woman should look like. An early example of the latter type was the Gibson girl, a representation of the New Woman drawn by Charles Dana Gibson. "Because the New Woman was symbolic of her new ideas about her sex, it was inevitable that she would also come to symbolize new ideas about sexuality."
