Paintings: Men’s Magazine Illustrations – M. Kuntsler

When you’re given the job to illustrate a story called ‘Find and Kidnap the Promiscuous Vice Queen’ or ‘Tiger Bandit of Saipan’ what do you come up with? Well M. Kuntsler came up with the following. I don’t know anything at all about the artist but his/her work for various Mens Magazines throughout the 50’s and 60’s is interesting and somewhat hilarious. Titles like Real Men, Men’s Adventures, Man’s Action, Real Men, Man’s Life and Man’s Book all used this type of art to illustrate it’s pages. These would be surrounded by lurid, sensational type about Nazi’s or white slavers and almost always be about women in peril – a big theme at the time.
