Exhibition - Mort Künstler: 'The Godfather' of Pulp Fiction Illustrators

Saturday, Nov 16, 2019 at 11:00am

Heckscher Museum of Art
2 Prime Avenue
Huntington, NY 11743

Mort Künstler, renowned as America’s premier Civil War painter, established his career in the 1950s and ‘60s as a prolific illustrator of popular men’s adventure magazines like True, Argosy, Stag, For Men Only, Male, Adventure, and Saga. In dramatic images of courage and physical prowess, Künstler captured the post-War bravado of the American male psyche across a broad range of themes: man vs. animal, heists and escapades, military conflicts, and Cold War espionage. The artist’s collaborations with pulp fiction authors included Mario Puzo, for whom he created the original visuals for The Godfather saga. Künstler’s larger-than-life role in the golden era of pulp fiction unfolds in more than 80 original illustrations from the artist’s private collection, almost all publicly exhibited for the first time.    

Exhibition Date: August 24, 2019 - November 17, 2019
