Duane Bryers was known as Dick to his friends. In 2012 he died in his Tucson home just a month shy of his 101st birthday. A life well lived. Bryers was the Norman Rockwell of pinup art, with his zaftig beauty, the oft-bikini-clad “Hilda,” taking center canvas. He began producing his Hilda collection in the mid-1950s and it lasted for 36 years. When many Tucson people hear his name they remember his wonderful contributions to Western Art. Today you can see his studio, recreated at the Tucson Museum of Art.
