DescriptionMichael Silver American Weekly Cover Original Art (Hearst Corp., 1952). Silver dealt oftener in romantic and/or suspenseful topics -- which makes this comical (and large-scale) confrontation unusual within his body of work. (The constant with Silver is feminine beauty, often glamorous.) Here, a bewildered housepainter attempts in vain to match a certain color. Physically speaking, the painting has seen better days -- but the colors remain vivid, practically bouncing off the deliberately neutral grey wall with which the artist frames his subjects. Tempera on heavy-duty illustration board. Image area, 21.25" x 26.5". Noticeable scuffing, marginal staining and barked edges/corners, and one pronounced horizontal crack, or crease. Good condition.
