FRANK R. PAUL (American,1884-1963),
Science Wonder Stories, pulp cover, September 1929
Watercolor and gouache on board
22.75 x 16.75 in.
Signed lower left

Frank R. Paul was the Promethean talent who blazed a trail for all that followed in the art of speculative fiction -- from his sublime, star-studded Amazing Stories pulp covers to his unforgettable, incendiary comic book classic featuring a red-hot Human Torch burning though a bank vault door on the cover of Marvel Comics #1. As his fellow science fiction legends have enthused, "Paul remains the undisputed king of the pulp artists" (Sir Arthur C. Clarke), and "Paul's fantastic covers for Amazing Stories changed my life forever." (Ray Bradbury). Paul was one of Weist's absolute favorite artists, so it stands to reason that his collection would have contained many of the finest examples-and this particular painting is at the very top. From the Jerry Weist Collection.
