About the Art: Mort Künstler did this painting as a magazine illustration in 1955, and it has been used multiple times since then. Most recently it appeared as a full color illustration for a story in the November/December 2011 issue of Sporting Classics Magazine.

Beginning in the 1950s, Künstler's illustrations were sought after by art directors of the leading magazines. Künstler's captivating and sometimes provocative images adorned the covers of Stag, For Men Only, True Adventures, Male and True Action magazines. Magazine Management, the publisher of these magazines, asked Künstler to use pseudonyms because he was doing so much work for them. Two of the pseudonyms he used were Martin Kay and Emmett Kaye - a play on his initials "MK". These illustrations have become emblematic of the pop culture of that era.

From Men's Adventure Magazines in Postwar America (Max Allan Collins and George Hagenauer, Taschen GMBH, 2004, p. 500)

"Künstler was at the top of the game in the genre, putting incredible detail and accurate descriptions of uniforms, weapons, and settings into his paintings, even when illustrating the likes of "The G.I. Who Raided Saigon Sally's Sin Barracks."

"His art has appeared in major magazines, such as National Geographic. The Saturday Evening Post, and Newsweek, and his commercial oeuvre also includes film posters and advertising work. He is now considered to be one of the premiere fine artists in the U.S painting historical objects."
