$22,000

About

Medium: Oil on Canvasboard Signature: Unsigned Dimensions: Sight Size 18.00" x 24.00;" Framed 28.50" x 35.50" Cover for Fate Magazine - August 1953 The original cover painting by H.W. McCauley used for the August 1953 cover of Fate (True Stories of the Strange and Unknown), illustrating "The Gods of Voodoo" by North Hildabrand. In this offering a dancing pin up girl levitates oblivious to the black magic and darkness that lurks in the background where a goat is about to get sacrificed in a voodoo ritualistic fire blazing act, creating the collision of beauty and darkness which is in essence what makes the pulp cover paintings by H.J. Ward, H.W. McCauley, Virgil Finlay, and other American illustrators fascinating and so desirable today. Like many other McCauley paintings of this era this work is usigned, it is guaranteed to be by Harold H.W. McCauley and the commissioned painting for the August 1953 of Fate. This oil on canvas board painting is handsomely framed in a period art deco frame and silk matted behind glass.
