DescriptionHerb Mott The Sea Wolves Paperback Novel Cover Original Art (Ballantine Books, 1964). For a virile tale of armed conflict at sea, Mott delivers a hard-edged naturalistic image at a grand scale, combining elements of Abstract Expressionism (in the harsh and violent textures) with a near-photographic realism. The metallic decking and weaponry (foreground) are shaped from multiple payers of paint, with angular slashes to convey turbulence. The even denser layers of ocean-foam stand out in sharp relief with almost a 3-D effect. The sense of urgent danger is palpable. Acrylics on illustration board. Image area, 13.5" x 21.5", matted to 18.5" x 26.75. Excellent condition.
