Spectacular original work of art published circa 1935-1940 in the English magazine, Brittania & Eve. If you are familiar with Matania's work, I don't need to tout his art. If you haven't seen much of it, or have never seen one of his originals, you are in for a happy surprise. Matania was the finest historical illustrator of the last century as well as one of the finest draughtsman. Although best known in the United States for his work on Edgar Rice Burrough's Venus series in THE PASSING SHOW, he created hundreds, if not thousands, of spectacular images throughout his extended career. Historically accurate & technically brilliant, his work was a clear - and in some cases acknowledged - influence on everyone from Frank Frazetta & Roy Krenkel to John Severin & Al Williamson. I've seen published pieces that contained figures that might have been drawn by Alex Raymond. (The one time I met Barry Windsor-Smith we spent 30 minutes talking about Matania, and his influence on Windsor-Smith's later work is obvious.) I am delighted to offer this beautiful original. Please see my other sales for more original art by Matania as well as nice examples of illustration & comic art by other artists.
