Item Description
10x12.25" artboard features pen and ink original art w/white paint highlights for 1930s pulp magazine illustration by Ed Winiarski, a comic book writer-artist known for both adventure stories and funny animal comics in the late 1930s and 1940s Golden Age of comic books. This art is from the period prior to his work in comics, when he was providing art to pulp magazines. Art depicts tense scene, showing woman in robe holding man at gunpoint as her African-American maid opens the door to let him in. Small "Underworld" penciled title at upper right w/"Fool For Trouble" pencil title at lower right margin. Winiarski has signed art at bottom center, on back of chair. Artboard has obvious corner foxing w/moisture staining at top corners and scattered dust soiling. VG overall, but art remains clean for the most part and displays VF.
