Vintage Pulp Art Original Illustration Sci Fi Occult Painting by David Prosser
This is a wonderfully mysterious and eerie, vintage & original, oil on illustration board painting. Signed in the lower right corner by the artist, David Prosser. Statues of women holding ropes line the edges of the staircase. A beam of light cuts down the middle of the painting and shows a vision of the bald man hovering over a group of satanic minions as they cut a thread of life. Loosely illustrating a moment from Seven Footsteps to Satan by Abraham Merritt, this likely appeared in Lunatic Quarterly, The Raving Maine-iac, or one of the other 1950s early science fiction fanzines to come out of pulp magazine and horror fandom.

We have come to this determination through the notations on the back which show this belonging to Clayton Hamlin, who was an active editor of such magazines in Bangor Maine. Prosser too was active int he community, and also a published illustrator.

W wonderful piece of vintage art that has been professionally matted and is ready to frame. Measures 19" x 32" with an image sight size of 13.25" x 26.5" CONDITION: This original, one of a kind painting is in great condition. The illustration board shows scattered loss and wear around the edges, but it has been effectively covered by the mat. The painting itself looks exquisite for its age and shows nominal signs of storage wear. Please also use the included images as a conditional guide.
