Diana Arbus referred to Yeager as “the world’s greatest pin up photographer” and the more than 30 books published about her work testify to that assessment. When she first picked up a camera in the early 1950’s , cheesecake photography was considered quite taboo, she lived to see her work shown in fine art galleries worldwide. The first major museum exhibition of Yeager’s work was held in 2014 at The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Pa. Two documentaries about Yeager were slated for release in 2019 and a scripted TV show based on her life is in the works. Our Next Sale ESTATE AUCTION. LIVE AND ONLINE. 400 LOTS.
