Original cover painting by Sidney Riesenberg (1885-1971) to the January 1931 issue of Complete Detective Novel Magazine. Oil on canvas, 30″ x 28″; framed to 33.5″ tall x 31.5″ wide in.
Comes with a copy of the original pulp.
Quality-wise, Riesenberg’s covers are hit-or-miss. The figure on the left is the best-realized figure we’ve seen in any of Riesenberg’s surviving paintings.
