    K. Gunnar Petersen - Original Cover Painting (1959). K. Gunnar Petersen was an accomplished illustrator who produced countless cover images for Kings Syndicate Publications. His work appeared on Sunday newspaper supplements and national magazines published by the company. This offering, a great 1950s image, is a superb bowling subject that nicely illustrates the eagerness of male bowlers to pass along their knowledge to a novice - at least one of the curvy blonde variety. Painted in gouache on board, it is framed (21 x 17) with a sight size of approximately 16.5 x 12. It is signed lower right, with a notation on the back of the art which notes, "front cover, March 8, 1959."
