1950This is the unique original Pen & Ink Wash by Giorgio De Gaspari.
A beautiful illustration rendered in ink wash 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.
Three figures with dramatic facial expressions have a frank discussion as one is clearly accused.
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.
