Walter Baumhofer: Pulp Art Masters SC

For just a few short years, Walter Baumhofer sprang into pop culture history as the first artist to imagine Doc Savage, The Man of Bronze. Baumhofer's unofficial title of "King of the Pulps" was well earned, as most publishers were envious of those few firms for which he painted covers, producing art that sold the magazines well beyond the stories themselves. Baumhofer ultimately made the move into lucrative advertising and slick markets in the mid-thirties, but he left behind pulp covers that were imitated for years. .
