Pin-Up Girls by Enoch Bolles

Being a fan of pin-up art (for those adorable vintage outfits and the fresh girl next-door portraits) , we're pretty surprised that we didn't know of the artist Enoch Bolles. Actually, we've seen his work, and even posted it on this site, but just assumed it was early Vargas artwork
Bolles (1883-1976) was an Art Deco pin-up artist who illustrated for countless advertisements and magazine covers.
Most of his work includes a model wearing either lingerie or swimwear, so it was hard to narrow down which pictures to include in this post! He seems to feature lingerie much more often than the revered pin-up artist Gil Elvgren.
(Thanks to reader Jagress for the tip!).
