About the Art: This painting was done for the February 1964 cover of For Men Only magazine, vol. 11, no. 2. It illustrated the story Nazi Snatching Jumping Wildman of the 82nd Airborne by Bill Francois.

Mort Künstler's Comments The 82nd Airborne action was immortalized in the movie "The Longest Day." Red Buttons was the actor who ended up hanging from the church steeple in the movie. This painting has been hanging in my studio for decades!

The Era of Men's Adventure 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."
