Alex Schomburg Science-fiction Tight Prelim Cover Art
(TT) Here's a beautiful little preliminary science fiction cover painting by ALEX SCHOMBURG. This art comes from a private collection where it has resided for many years.We also sell ORIGINAL FANTASY ARTWORK from the collection of EC ARTIST Johnny Craig. His attention to detail and color were always two of his strong points. He began in the science fiction illustration field during the 1930s doing black and white interiors and color cover paintings for pulp magazines. During the 1940s he became known for his dynamic (and very crowded) superhero covers for Timely's MARVEL MYSTERY, HUMAN TORCH, CAPTAIN AMERICA and other titles. During the 1950s he gained further reputation for his beautiful color covers for the hardcover Winston juvenile series of SF books. His prelims are so detailed and almost look like the finished paintings. This art is rendered with Gouche on illustration board and has an image area measuring 5 1/2" x 7 3/4" in size. There is an inscription in the lower border area that says Space craft wrecked on Luna. We suspect this was a cover prelim for either AMAZING STORIES or FANTASTIC digest magazines during the 1960s. This original is in EXCELLENT condition. We have tried very hard to properly list this item and describe the condition for you. Thanks for looking and good luck to all!
