This is the original cover painting for the novel by Graham Masterson for the paperback edition published by MacDonald, 1989. Just two years earlier, Pether painted his first concept for the very same novel - which is also available! Realistic, and visually contemporary in feeling, finely rendered in acrylic and gouache on illustration board, 11" x 15" in "wraparound" format - with (as usual) the front cover not doing justice to panoramic look of the image, much more impressive when seen as a whole. Comes with a label attesting to its authenticity signed by Pether's widow, mounted to the back. One of a kind - so if you love it, don't hesitate.
