Happy New Year by Enoch Bolles

Could this be not only the classiest girl in a coupe glass, but also the first?  By now even the most casual of followers of this blog knows I am not one to be shy about pointing out original examples by Bolles that have since become standards in the world of pinup art.  And the girl in the glass is one of the best.  None other than Dita von Teese has turned it into her most famous stage acts (although she uses a Martini glass).  If I can find an earlier example by another artist you'll be the first to know, but for now let's offer a toast to the new year in memory of our man Bolles.

What an enjoyable blog. Hard to believe I hadn't heard of Bolles until recently. I'd seen his work but never knew who was responsible for those fine pulp covers.

Happy New Year to you and yours!

So glad you found it. There nearly seven years of Bolles goodness to peruse here. Enjoy,
