Original William Soare Illustration Art, Signed 1930s Western Pulp Cover Sketch For Sale
Quality vintage/collectible items - 100% guaranteed all original -
You are offerding on an original signed William F. Soare drawing for a late 1920s-1930s pulp western magazine cover. Graphite on paper, this dramatic design drawing is 11 x 8.5" in size, and has minor toning and edge wear, especially in the upper right, as pictured. Gotta love the heroine reloading the six-gun, and our hero blasting away, although wounded in the arm in red pencil! Note the bad guy in the window to the left. There were so many Western pulps of this era, this one is hard to pin down specifically. My best guess is Western Aces, which seemed to feature a gun-totin' gal (not a victim) involved in a battle along side her man on the cover. My next best guess would be Western Trails, or possibly Western Romances.
William Fulton Soare was born in 1896, served in WWI, then studied at the Sorbonne in Paris. He returned to New York City and studied with Harvey Dunn and Dean Cornwell at the Grand Central School of Art. In 1927 he opened an art studio at 41 Union Square. Soare died of a heart attack at age 42 on March 1, 1940, while shoveling snow from his sidewalk in expectation of the scheduled arrival of a staff member of The Saturday Evening Post to discuss a cover illustration for an upcoming issue. The photo of William Soare is for reference only. If you are interested in illustration art, this will make a great addition to your collection....Good luck & happy offerding!
