Grand Old Times . . . In The Future (Overview of Pulp Art)

At the time, the artists working for the pulps weren't considered anything but cheap creatives providing cheap entertainment for cheap minds. But now we know what they were: visions of wonder, amazing vistas of the imagination, daring dreams of possibility, magnificent views of What Could Be -- but most of all we look back at what they did and recognize it for being truly magnificent art.

I must have a cheap mind, cause I've always loved the Pulp Art and these examples are terrific. From my perspective I would prefer to call them examples of Pop Art or even what some have labeled Low Brow, or I think a new term is New Brow. Whatever you wish to call them, they are accomplished artists who deserve respect and recognition for their vision and their work.
