Description

Maria Rivans’ Miss Cordelia makes part of Maria’s popular pin up series. Miss Baker features the sultry Jean Simmons wearing attire made from maps, surrounded by exotic creatures and a roulette table. Each individual movie star develops their own firm identity, as if they were a solid memorable character starring in one of Rivans’ invented scripts. These leading ladies have been highly influenced by strong female actors like Bette Davis and Joan Crawford who made a huge impression on Rivans when she was a child. The Pin-up characters hold qualities of women who are particularly empowered and have recently been named after famous women explorers and inventors.
