Original work, mixed media, 1966
Coppola was commissioned by legendary Penguin art director Germano Facetti and under his guidance was inspired to create a series of ground breaking covers.
A Perry Mason novel written by Erle Stanley Gardner in 1949, reprinted in 1966 by Penguin, gets the same modernist approach as Coppola’s covers for literary novels. The democratising effect of abstracting pulp imagery elevates a pulp-fiction novel, just as it makes the high-brow more accessible.
The original painting art board is approximately 27 cm wide x 40 cm tall.
