“In 1935, Walter Baumhofer did these three covers for ADVENTURE magazine. We aren’t aware of any particular reason why these paintings were done, such as for a series running in the magazine. Baumhofer and the editor were just monkeying around and came up with the idea and ran with it through the year. They are just a delightful trio of paintings and a excellent example of why Baumhofer is considered one of the greatest pulp artists ever.”
