Jerome Rozen - Shadow Pulp Cover Recreation Original Art (undated). George Jerome Rozen (1895-1974) and Jerome George Rozen (1895-1987) were twins. After World War I, Jerome enrolled in the Art Institute of Chicago. He soon became an instructor there, and George followed Jerome into a career in art, a year later, and actually studied under Jerome's tutelage. Jerome's first sale was to the Fawcett magazine Excitement. With that success, he moved to the Bronx, opened a studio at 163 West Twenty-third Street, and began painting covers for many of the pulps. George followed Jerome to New York, and both brothers' work was in high demand. Street and Smith's The Shadow was a sensation, thanks in part to Jerome's early covers. George Rozen also painted The Shadow covers, from 1932-39, and in again, in 1941-42, and 1949. Just as his pulp career was winding down, Jerome was severely injured in an automobile accident. George continued working in the pulp field after World War II, and later, after the pulps' day had waned, he tried, in vain, to convince Street and Smith to revive the Shadow and Doc Savage franchises. In 1964, Jerome closed his studio, just as photography began to usurp painted illustration in magazines and advertising. The Rozen brothers produced hundreds of unforgettable pulp cover images. For this sensational recreation, Jerome paid tribute to George's cover for The Shadow, September 1, 1932 issue, which featured the story, "Hidden Death." The painting is oil on linen, has an image area measuring approximately 21" x 30", and is framed to an overall size of 26" x 36". The piece is in Excellent condition.
