Beall, Cecil Calvert

Price: $2,800.00

Description: Laboratory blast, young woman hiding

Comment: I can't help but feel that C.C. Beall is among the most underrated of American illustrators of his day. He was immensely popular at the time and yet today most only know him slightly. That's a pity. I love the technique… I guess that one could call it “lost and found edges.” It's that quality that makes this appear both very loose and very “realistic” (and Yes, I know that's a dirty word) at the same time. Yet, this is not just a picture for the Beall fans among us… early mass media depictions of sci-fi, lovers of “yellow peril subjects”, followers of the stories of Sax Rohmer and oh yeah… anyone who likes a good piece of story-telling. Note: As of this moment, the original is at Scarlow's Gallery on West 2nd St. here in Casper. It is still available and should be back here soon. Let me know if you need a better photo.

Price: $2,800 (+ $75 domestic shipping)
