  • This is the first time most of these cover paintings have been collected and reproduced in their original form. Uncensored genre art that splashed the covers of American news stand pulp magazines in the 1930s and 40s frequently expressed male violence.

    “Savage Art” showcases this popular period illustration - that prefigured and helped create the violent visual language in much of today’s aboveground cinema (“Pulp Fiction”, “Kill Bill”), comic books (“The Dark Knight Returns”, “Sin City”) and ultra-violent multimillion copy video games (“Grand Theft Auto”, and “Metal Gear Solid”). Featuring the original disturbing paintings by Walter Baumhofer, Rafael de Soto, Jerome Rozen and other pulp illustrators, many shown here for the first time, this lavishly produced full colour collection documents Depression era masculine aggression as depicted on the covers of popular literature.
