The Pulp Art of Carl Pfeufer


Born in Mexico in 1910 but raised in New York City, the artist Carl Pfeufer studied at the Cooper Union Art School when he was 16 and later continued his studies at the National Academy of Design, Grand Central School of Art, and the Art Students League of New York.  He was also an apprentice and student to the impressionist painter, William Starkweather.  Up until his death in 1980, Pfeufer was a popular and much-in demand illustrator.  Though he spent most of his career in the comic book industry, Pfeufer also did his share of pulp work.  Here’s a small sampling of his pulp work, ranging from the late 50s to the early 60s.
