A lurid and gruesome large en grisaille style original oil on illustration board by noted 20th century artist and Illustrator Basil Gogos. An interior or perhaps cover illustration for a 1960s post-war pulp mens magazine published by Balcourt. This copy selling gruesome frontier style work pushes the envelope showing whisky bottle anesthetic self amputation by lantern light. Basil Gogos is currently featured in a long and detailed retrospective in Illustration Magazine. Nicely matted and framed and ready to hang.
