DescriptionRaphael DeSoto - Detective Tales Cover Recreation Original Art (undated). An outstanding recreation of the cover of the February, 1940 issue of Detective Tales, painted by Raphael DeSoto. This classic pulp cover features a square-jawed detective trying to free a comely lass (whose dress has the uncanny ability to defy gravity!) from the clutches of a couple of bloodthirsty butchers. Although it reflects a slightly different color palette than the original, it is nevertheless a very faithful recreation of this wicked pulp gem. The painting measures 20" x 28" and is in Excellent condition.
