“Cubist Maidens” is a lyrical and poignant original mixed medium fine art painting by the prolific and well remembered science fiction and pulp cover artist Virgil Finlay. Work is signed and dated lower left and again on the verso. Modernist and inventive in style, the work is executed in grease pencil and water color, with a scratchboard technique of cutting back into the drawing used to define the faces. This unusual example deftly shows the technical mastery and imagination of this important American illustrator.
Painting is framed and matted behind glass in a beautiful wide profile frame that shows the painting to great effect.
