    Paul Stahr (1883-1953) Original Magazine Cover Art (1934). Paul Stahr was a skilled artist who painted magazine covers throughout his career. They appeared on such publications as American Magazine, Collier's Weekly, and Woman's Home Companion. But it was his work for Argosy magazine for which Stahr is most remembered; providing the publication with primarily western and adventure images, he produced scores of cover paintings that would entice readers to buy their magazine. This painting, an Argosy cover from March 17, 1934, is presented in the traditional dramatic style found in Stahr's Argosy work. An extremely powerful image and superb example of the artist's pulp work. It is rendered in oil on canvas, measures 24 x 23, and is signed lower left. An issue of the Argosy magazine is included.
