Signed by artist in pencil bottom rightThis is the Signed unique original Mixed Media art by Giorgio de Gaspari.
A beautiful illustration rendered in pencil, charcoal and white paint by the fantastic Giorgio De Gaspari.
Gaspari had a fabulous knack of giving a dramatic, almost cinematic edge to his illustrations, and this is no exception. Gaspari delights with his clever perspectives and an artful mastery of the human form and expression.
In this image, a Wild Beast has been captured and arrives at a station in a cargo train.
It's extremely rare to come across these pieces which Gaspari painted for thriller and crime magazines, often filled with glamorous dames, gangsters and heroes.
The page has the original publisher's notes written in pencil to the bottom of the sheet.
This illustration is signed in full in pencil.
