DescriptionLou Marchetti The Dark Place Cover Painting Original Art and Published Version (Ace, 1964). Marchetti is associated more commonly with hard-boiled crime novels, but here he tackles the Gothic romance genre with an expressive central figure, flanked by two miniature, doll-like shapes. The piece is a striking departure from the genre's customary image of a young woman fleeing a creepy old mansion. Included is a copy of the paperback edition of Mildred Davis' The Dark Place. Gouache on Illustration board. Image area, 15" x 20". Slight chipping at corners. A short strip of production tape and a whiteout area appear at bottom. Excellent condition.
