Original Art -Signed Frank R. Paul Painting April 1961 for the Giant Anniversary Issue of Amazing Stories
Frank Paul Art - New to Market
Description:

Artist: Frank R. Paul (1884-1963)


Original painting for the back cover to the April 1961 Giant Anniversary Issue of Amazing Stories by the â€ËœFather of Science Fictionâ€â„¢  Illustration, Frank R. Paul.


Gouache on board, signed lower left, from the Collection of Sam Moskowitz.


11â€Â x 15â€Â, with frame 19 ¾â€Â  x  20â€Â


This painting constitutes the only other known private commission to Paul (the other two being bought by Forrest J. Ackerman). In this commission, Sam had Paul paint a scene from his popular â€Å“life on Other Worldsâ€Â theme that had graced previous AMAZING back covers in the 1940s, using elephants (Samâ€â„¢s wife Christine had a collection of elephant statues and illustrations) and, since Moskowitz had a close friendship and professional working relationship with the Amazing editor and publisher, he allowed this painting to be used for the back cover.


Ray Bradbury had this to say: "As for me, Frank R. Paul romanced me with future architectures when I was eight, summoning me to cities lost in the Time Ahead until he landed me in shocks of joy, in the colored facades and high-rises of the Chicago World's Fair." In Infinite Worlds, Vincent di Fate, 1997, Penguin Studio, p. 5   (courtesy of Frank Wu)


Offered here for the first time, ever.
