Artwork of the Day: Gold (by Charles Wood)


by Charles Wood

Unless this is a reprint, this is from 1931.  Gold was written by Clarence Budington Kelland, who was a very popular writer of the time.  His most popular novel was Mr. Deeds Goes To Town, which has been filmed at least twice.  Gold was a novel about international finance.  It told the story of Anneke Van Horn, who knew how to make money but not how to land a man and have the family that she desired.  Remember, it was written in 1931.

The artwork was done by Charles Wood, who also did a lot of covers for western pulp magazines.  The red dress is exquisite and worth however much gold it cost.
