Vaughan Alden Bass
Vaughan Alden Bass was an American painter of pin-up art. Bass was a Chicago artist who started his career working for the Louis F. Dow Company in St. Paul during the mid-1930s. 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). He created the Wonder Bread Girl in the 1950s. His portrait of President Dwight D. Eisenhower is in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.
