Two squared jaw toughs slug it out as a pretty red haired, green eyed damsel in distress looks on in this classic action-packed pulp cover painting. Though the work is unsigned, and we are unsure of the publication usage, this bears all the hallmarks of 1940s pulp covers; the bold use of color, and intense depiction of suspense and peril. Nicely framed in a wide profile gold frame and in a fine state of conservation.
