On offer is an action packed, large format cover painting by George H. Wert, commissioned by Street & Smith publishers for the April 27, 1929 edition of Western Story Magazine. A foiled bank robbery in the old west as the three tough as nails cowboys heed orders to “Come out with your hands up”. The artist employs a heavy impasto outer technique to mimic the look (and feel) of traditional Southwestern stucco architecture. A fresh to the market recent New York state estate find from a former employee of the storied publishing company. Painting retains the original dark wood simple but right looking antique frame, and has benefited from cleaning and conservation – we are searching for the published magazine.
