    Description

    Frank R. Paul (1884-1963) Original Pulp Magazine Back Cover Art (1942).
    Prometheus, Fantastic Adventures November, 1942 (Ziff-Davis). Number five in a 13-painting series titled Greek Gods & Heroes. These early-1940s back cover paintings are considered to be some of Paul's very best work. Ziff-Davis Publications had a strict policy of no nudity on their covers, yet Paul managed to feature a number of nude women in this painting. As best as can be determined, this is the only surviving painting from the "Greek Gods" series.
    Mixed media on board, approximately 18 x 13.5. Signed lower left.
