Vaughan Alden Bass – American pin up artist.

Bass was a Chicago artist who started his career working for the Louis F. Dow Company in St. Paul during the mid-1930s. Vaughan Alden Bass created his own pin-ups for Brown & Bigelow, but he worked for Dow as a “paint over” artist, redoing work that other artists (notably Gil Elvgren) had done for the company.

Bass’ style was often compared with that of Gil Elvgren, Al Buell, and Joyce Ballantyne. In the late 1950s, Bass did a series of wrestling scenes that demonstrated his comfort with any subject matter.
