    Earle K. Bergey - Original Pulp Magazine Cover Art (c.1933). In the 1930s, Bergey produced cover images for such publications as Real Screen Fun, Gay Broadway, and Snappy. He later became well-known for the beauties he created for science fiction pulp magazines, such as Startling Stories, Captain Future, and Planet Stories. This exceptional pulp cover painting for Bedtime Stories is a simply stunning woman who captivates the viewer. Richly painted with a skilled touch of light and shadow, she appears to nearly walk off the canvas. This scarce pulp cover painting is rendered in oil on canvas and measures 30 x 21. Noted on the back upper stretcher is "Winter, Bedtime Stories."

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
