Biography and art, auction, artworks, interview, statement, website:
For about twenty years roughly between 1940 and 1960 – there flourished in this country a singular style in painting and illustration. It was brooding, colorful, realistic, and often vaguely pornographic, and it manifested itself on the covers of paperback books…
Probably no other paperback
illustration style has had more
imitators than that developed
by James Avati…
