This is the original artwork for the cover of the pulp magazine, Masked Rider Western, Volume 4, #1, June 1937, Ranger Publications.

Collection of Scott Newman and Gregory Long

‪The overall condition of this painting is good. The work is stretched onto its original stretcher. The canvas, ground and paint film are all structurally in fine shape. However:the surface has become dirty over time. Under UV examination some small additions of retouch can be seen. These are located in the area of the purple background and center right in the shoulder area of the black shadow figure. These addition shave been made to correct some minor abrasion in the paint film.‬
