Painting: Book Covers without Titles

If I should have probably researched this further and identified all the artists and the books these painting were used for. Instead I’ve decided to go the easy route and simply post them – as is. They are really beautiful paintings all on their own. A high degree of talent and skill have gone into these pieces – great brush style, great color, interesting subject-matter. As the title of the post suggests; these are paintings commisioned for use as cover art for various pulp novels, mostly in the 50’s and 60’s. They may have been used for a specific book or different editions of the same book (with an altered type or color treatment), or even different books altogether.
