Savage Art: 20th Century Genre and the Artists that Defined It

Savage Art showcases the popular period illustration which prefigured and helped create the violent visual language in today's popular aboveground cinema, comic books, and ultra-violent multi-million copy video games. Featuring disturbing illustration by pulp artists Walter Baumhofer, Rafael de Soto, Jerome Rozen, and others, this beautifully produced full-color collection documents Depression-era masculine violence, in fantasy and reality, as depicted on the covers of popular literature.
