(Green, 1970s) An original painting created by renowned illustrator Peter Green to be used as cover artwork for an issue of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine. The magazine was highly regarded for its content which included articles and photos from silent era horror films to more modern releases. However, one of the most memorable aspects of the publication was the beautifully illustrated sci-fi and horror related cover artwork. Green was commissioned by Famous Monsters founder James Warren to create this unique painting for use as one such cover in the late 1970s, however an alternate design was ultimately used for publication. The painting, accomplished in acrylic on a canvas frame, measures 39"x29" and is in fair condition. There is moderate wear to the surface from contact with another painting, including paint loss and additional paint wear.
