A fresh to the market oil painting on canvas by an American artist that was created as cover art for the January, 1949 issue of 10 Story Western. A lurid Wild West pulp title that premiered in 1936 published by Popular Publications. A rugged nattily attired cowboy on the run, lights a match at the tombstone of an outlaw named Red Walters who was “hanged wrong.”
Pulp illustrators of the golden age excelled at creating eye catching covers that iconically captured the fear, terror, danger and lawlessness which were the calling cards of the menace and western pulp titles of the era as this dramatic painting demonstrates. Painting has been handsomely framed and is ready to hang.
