Description

Featuring the work of one of the most prolific illustrators of the twentieth century, Mort Künstler: “The Godfather” of Pulp Fiction Illustrators includes more than 80 original paintings that graced the covers of American publications throughout the 1950s and ‘60s. This exhibition also explores Künstler’s collaboration with Mario Puzo, resulting in the first visual character studies of The Godfather’s Corleone family. Vivid, provocative, and boldly kinetic, this exhibition offers museum visitors an action-packed odyssey through a classic American cultural landscape that has all but vanished.
