Enoch Bolles (3 March 1883 – 16 March 1976) was an American painter of pin-up art. He was among the earliest and most widely circulated glamour illustrators. While known today solely as a pinup artist, Bolles was a versatile illustrator who also worked extensively in the advertising industry, creating hundreds of attractive color illustrations for products .
Bolles was born in Boardman, Marion County, Florida, the son of Enoch Bolles, Jr., a chemist in the perfume industry, and Catherine Keep. After his father's death, the family moved to Newark, New Jersey, where he met and, in 1903, married Clara Kaufman. They had eight children together, eventually settling in Harrington, New Jersey.
Bolles studied at the National Academy of Design, and his first illustrations were published in 1914 on the covers of joke books, such as Judge and Puck. He became best known for illustrating Film Fun. In 1923 he became the exclusive cover artist for Film Fun and continued in this role until the magazine folded in 1943, a victim of the Postmaster General's campaign against 'salacious' material. In addition to his 200 covers for Film Fun, Bolles painted at least 300 more for spicy pulps, including Breezy Stories, Pep and New York Nights. None of this work was signed and most of it remains unattributed. Bolles' monthly lineup of all-American beauties precisely posed in wildly imaginative costumes did much to define the future of American pin-up illustration, and remain popular today. He was also a versatile illustrator who created advertising for many products, including Sun-Maid Raisins.
Psychological problems ended Bolles professional career in 1943 and confined him to Greystone Hospital in New Jersey for most of the rest of his life, but he continued to paint commissioned portraits and for personal pleasure. He was eventually discharged from hospital in 1969, and died from heart failure at the age of 93.

VANGUARD GALLERY OFFERS VERY RARE ART IMAGES:
Many do not know that the vast production of illustration , advertising, pulp and pinup art was not viewed as "real art" and not appreciated as such. When the advertising, book and magazine companies were done with the art, it was casually thrown away in dumpsters.
I have interviewed personally those that were there, and just at two of these many, throw away events. In just two events, from just two of scores of companies, one in 1957 and the other in 1960, apx 20,000 pieces of art, spanning about 60 years, by great and highly skilled artists were simply thrown away.
In those dumpsters was Normal Rockwell, Gil Elvgren, Earl Moran, Mabel Rollins Harris, Henry Clive, Zoe Mozert, MacPherson, Pearl Frush, Al Leslie, Henry Hintermeister, Roy Best, Art Frahm, Billy Devorss, Runci, Munson, Thompson, Ward, and that is just to name a few of the many lost artist's work from wide ranging genre' of religious, nature, nudes, Pulp Fiction, pin-ups, Calendar, and advertising. So anything that survives, even if preserved or recreated thoughtfully is indeed precious.
VANGUARD'S FINE ART PRINT PORTFOLIO:
As much of the original paintings for vintage illustrations were lost, we at Vanguard Gallery have worked hard, and invested dearly for 20 years to find and preserve or recreate the very best, find the interesting, the historic, the rare and often important works; representing the popular culture, interests of the times. As popular art is a real window of society. This was snap shot on the aspirations, dreams and fantasies of the American people in historically unstable and increasingly violent 20th Century. I time when, family life, love, faith, hope and romance was the glue that held us together, a staple of life, not merely dismissed as "cute nostalgia".
Our more than 20 year journey and mission is more than just to present you with ascetic image, but windows of appreciations of the recent past, our history, and again window to your parents and grand parents life.
