ITEM: We have a great collection of colorful and often times lurid original illustration paintings from the Golden Age of Illustration 1920 - 1930. These are by the Minneapolis artist Coyle Tincher, most ran in the Minneapolis Paper in serialized weekly versions of popular 1920's fiction books. Many have pulp like colorful and dark imagery -- these are great as you will find if you follow our weekly sales.
A staff artist for the Minneapolis Tribune, Coyle Tincher had the distinct pleasure of illustrating many of the lurid and melodramatic scenes which filled the serialized novels the newspaper ran each week. This gouache original illustration painting we believe illustrates a scene from "Red Masquerade" by Louis Joseph Vance. Though an obscure author today, Vance was wildly popular in the 1920s for his character the Lone Wolf, a "gentleman thief and adventurer." Red Masquerade follows the adventures of the Wolf's daughter as she explores the dangers and seductions of the far east, as seen in this over the top illustration. A Fu Manchu styled character in a tense evening carriage scene in an orientalist styled aesthetic. A strong example of narrative illustration, with bold colors - ready to frame.Illustration board measures 15 1/4" by 13"
CONDITION: This antique very old gouache painting published illustration on board has some margin edge wear and soiling but will frame up very well as the center portion artwork remains in a fine state of conservation -
