DescriptionNORMAN SAUNDERS (American 1906 - 1988)
Dime Detective Magazine cover, November 1950
Oil on board
22 x 15 in.
This cover scene was based on the story, A Bullet For Baby, and it's an electrifying example of Saunders' hard-boiled pulp thrillers.
Saunders was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota and first studied art through a mail-order course. After working for Minnesota-based Fawcett Publications from 1928-34, he moved to New York where he became a free-lance pulp artist. Saunders continued his art training there, studying with Harvey Dunn at the Grand Central School of Art. After serving in the military in World War II, he returned to pulp and paperback illustration.
