ARTIST BIO: ENOCH BOLLES
Enoch Bolles one of the top producing Art Deco era pin-up artists, mostly because of the massive exposure his images received on magazine covers and newsstands nation wide.
Bolles' pin-ups are the playful and racy flapper girl - clearly influential on many artists of his time. including the later famous Alberto Vargas and George Petty.
Bolles began in 1915, when hired by the Dell Publishing Company to paint front covers for its line of Spicy Pulp style magazines.. Film Fun was the pin-up magazine that immortalized his work, though he often would not sign the paintings. From 1921 to 1948, Film Fun and other magazines had his cover pin-ups which the readers came to recognize as much as the Petty Girl from Esquire. Bolles worked for many others. Gay Parisienne, as shown here, Coy Book, Cupid's Capers and Spicy Stories, which had the biggest distribution of his covers and pin-up girls. He sometimes had strong Art Deco backgrounds, used other props, and clothing such as flimsy negligees and bathing suits all with a strong "deco" style.
The wide use of primary colors he employed was unique and playful. Although Bolles was a prolific artist, like many popular illustrators very few of the original paintings exist today. Little is known about Bolles' life, born in the Chicago area, he worked in New York City, the mecca of many publishing houses specializing in pulps and men's magazines in the 1920s through 1950's.

WHO IS DANIEL VANCAS?
Daniel Vancas is a fine artist and fine art publisher of limited editions. Known mostly for his work in pinup, illustration, aviation and automobile art. He was the very first publisher of fine art Elvgren limited editions, and also the very first to commercially offer high quality Elvgren Replica paintings. He promoted Elvgren for 14 years at his own expense of $1,000,000.
Before Elvgren was rediscovered in the late 1990's and well before most of those popular new books came out, Daniel Vancas Owned and opened several Vanguard Galleries promoting Elvgren! He paid for shows all around the country promoting Elvgren pinup. He was the first to open Elvgren web sites in 1993 & 94.
HE WAS THE FIRST COMMERCIAL REPLICA ARTIST OF ELVGREN WORKS:
Because an estimated 40% of all of Elvgren's paintings were thrown away and lost, and because the found ones are rarely are for sale, unless offered at $75,000 to $150,000; Daniel Vancas was the first to paint the replicas of Elvgren pinups for the public, using mostly the destroyed, lost and unavailable Elvgren images. In this way he has faithfully and lovingly preserved many now lost works of art for another generation. At first he was licensed with B&B, now he owns his own separate elvgren Intellectual Property.
Over the years he was also licensed by the VARGAS ESTATE, and bought and sold many vintage original vintage pinup paintings by Elvgren, Vargas, Petty, Moran and many others. Many celebrities and actors have been to his shows and gallery openings.
Daniel Vancas painted over 238 ELVGREN REPLICA PAINTINGS! He has signed and dated back of each one, so they will never be confused with the original vintage painting by Elvgren. The reason you don't often see them for resale is because the collectors of these paintings keep them. Most are sold through galleries.
