Howard Connolly
Thrilling Love Soda Girl

1950

About

A fresh to the market, good girl art painting by Howard Connelly, created as the June 1950 cover of the Thrilling Publications pulp title Thrilling Love. A pretty pin-up girl enjoys a soda fountain strawberry shake against a vibrant yellow fade away design aesthetic that is modernist and impactful. The 1940s and 50s saw the creation of many breezy romance-minded pulp titles, which stood in strong contrast to the menace and spicy titles of the 1930s. Grapefruit Moon Gallery recently purchased seven published pulp cover paintings from an east coast collection of a former employee of the publishers. This has been put on new pine back stretcher bars and displays very well. Sight Size 15 1/4 X 21"
