Enoch Bolles' Pin-up

"Enoch Bolles remains largely a figure of mystery. He apparently ended his days in an insane asylum, where he "improved" on his wonderful canvases by adding such touches as jagged jewelry and hovering phalluses."
Whoops, not true(?):
Suffered a stroke, 1938, and retired to Florida (he was a Florida native). Continued to be published for a number of years. He liked to take his original pin-ups and add abstract touches.
