Afraid In The Dark_Scan-use

This original oil painting on canvasboard was created as the paperback cover for the 1953 Popular Library publication of Afraid In The Dark by Mark Derby. A lurid page turner with tag line that reads "Vengeance and Passion in Exotic Malaya." Our research leads us to believe this was painted by Raymond Johnson, painting is beautifully lined and framed in a carved gold likely Newcomb-Macklin antique frame and a complete edition of the published book is included in the sale.
