A genre defining girl in peril, menace themed pulp cover painting by the prolific and gifted American illustrator Peter Driben, this appeared as the cover for the December 1941 issue of Expose Detective True Crime Cases. Illustrating the interior story "The Scarlet Sinner's Final Exit," this lurid, large and rare surviving pulp cover painting has it all. Beautifully framed and in a fine state of conservation with the published cover of the painting included in the sale. Grapefruit Moon Gallery sold this painting to a good client a couple of years ago, he has consigned it with us again to make wall space for new acquisitions, to our delight as this has always been among our very favorite Driben images.
