Savage Art 20th Century Genre and the Artists that Defined It


Savage Art 20th Century Genre and the Artists that Defined It by Frank M. Robinson

Savage Art showcases the popular period illustration which prefigured and helped create the violent visual language in today's popular aboveground cinema, comic books, and ultra-violent multi-million copy video games. Featuring disturbing illustration by pulp artists Walter Baumhofer, Rafael de Soto, Jerome Rozen, and others, this beautifully produced full-color collection documents Depression-era masculine violence, in fantasy and reality, as depicted on the covers of popular literature.

He co-authored Pulp Culture: The Art of Fiction Magazines, a renowned reference book on pulp art and literature, and co-edited Art of Imagination.
