Grapefruit Moon Gallery is delighted to offer this recently unearthed George Jerome Rozen pulp painting featuring the Shadow in dramatic confrontation. Featured as the cover of the September 15, 1936 edition of Street and Smith's long running series "The Shadow." This is a major offering, recently uncovered from a Pennsylvania estate. As collectors will lament, original cover paintings from The Shadow prove near impossible to locate. The most recent auction of a George Rozen Shadow cover (Creeping Death: January, 1933) brought $47,800.00 on 10/15/2008.
