Description

    Sam Savitt - Western Roundup #20 Cover Original Art (Dell, 1957). The thrill of riding herd on a pack of wild mustangs is captured in this dynamic cover scene, painted for the Dell Giant Western Roundup #20. Western Publishing's painted covers for Dell, Gold Key, and Whitman were always a treat, and here is your chance to win a Sam Savitt original! Savitt's career was covered in Leo Pando's detailed article for Illustration #4, "Savitt's skill in the studio were on a par with his skills in the saddle, and that set him apart from the majority of his contemporaries. When a comic cover required a horse, Savitt was the man for the job. His unsurpassed love and knowledge of horses, combined with his artistic talents, would serve him well in a career that extended from the colorful world of comic books and pulps to highly competitive magazine, book, and advertising work and culminated in prestigious gallery and commissioned work." This painting has an image area of 13.5" x 18". There is some light foxing on the surface of the painting; otherwise the art is in Very Good condition. A copy of Western Roundup #20 is also included in the lot. Saddle up and bid!
