DescriptionVIRGIL FINLAY (1914-1971).
Original Pulp Magazine Cover Art
Famous Fantastic Mysteries, October, 1942, Frank A. Munsey
Oil on board
10in. x 14in. (sight size). Framed
Signed lower right: Virgil Finlay
A scientist ponders the images of a man and a woman held in his two test tubes. Virgil Finlay's cover is rendered with the same attention to detail that he lavished on his renowned ink illustrations. Quite a bit of his painting was cropped out by type elements when it appeared on the printed cover. There are a few light wrinkles on the surface of the board that do very little to detract from the enormous eye-appeal of this sensational cover; otherwise it is in Very Good condition. A Very Good copy of the pulp magazine is included in this lot.
