    Enoch Bolles - Original Pulp Magazine Cover Art (1930). A captivating art deco image by Enoch Bolles, this painting was published as the cover for Film Fun, May, 1930. The model for this elegant jester was posed by Marion Nixon, a popular Hollywood actress in the '20s and '30s who made the transition from silent movies to "talkies." She appeared in 73 films, among them, "Riders of the Purple Sage" (1925) with Tom Mix, "Charlie Chan's Chance" (1932) with Warner Oland, and she starred as Rebecca in "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" (1932). This offering is a unique glimpse of movie history combined with an outstanding art deco pulp cover by Bolles. Executed in oil on canvas, it measures 24 x 18 and is signed lower right. This painting was reproduced in The Great American Pin-up (Martignette & Meisel), page 51, fig. 87. An issue of the Film Fun magazine is included.
