A rare surviving original cover painting by Enoch Bolles which appeared as the cover for the June 1945 Issue of Breezy Stories an envelope pushing, spicy pulp publication of much notoriety. This was most likely painted earlier than the published date noted here, as the magazine was in the practice of re-using existing artwork for its covers and the style and imagery mark this as coming from the 1930s, when Bolles produced his most inventive and important work. Grapefruit Moon Gallery sold this work in 2006 and recently reacquired it; we are delighted to offer it again for sale. Work is nicely framed and ready to hang.
We rarely come across paintings by Enoch Bolles and it is speculated that many original works were destroyed by the artist himself. A recent auction result of $28,600.00 proves his cult-like popularity and status within the illustration art market.
