THE GOGOS GALLERY



When the hammer dropped at the Heritage Auctions house on 11 May 2012, this stunning painting of the cover art for FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND #14 (Oct. 1961) by Basil Gogos sold for a staggering $31,070! Not too surprising, though, because Gogos' original art is not plentiful on the market.

The work is acrylic on illustration board, and measures 8" x 11 1/2", roughly the original size of the cover. The back shows notes by Gogos to identify the piece. It was listed in "Excellent" condition. A marvelous example of monster magazine history!
