Mel Hunter
The Broken Angel

1958

About

A ghastly and macabre pulp cover painting by Mel Hunter for the January, 1958 edition of "Mercury Mystery Book-Magazine", this loosely illustrated a story by Floyd Mahannah titled "The Broken Angel." A voluptuous redheaded vixen appears in a moodily conceived graveyard at night with an ominous figure in a top-hat looming near an angel grave marker in the background. Our heroine appears to be in eminent danger as her necklace has been configured around her ample bust line and has her hands and arms constricted in a clever adaptation of a S&M, fetish bondage scene. Painting has been professionally matted and shrink wrapped and is ready for framing. Measures a matted 16" X 20.5" with an image sight size of 10.25" x 15"
