Mort Künstler, renowned as America’s premier Civil War painter, established his career in the 1950s and ‘60s as a prolific illustrator of popular men’s adventure magazines like True, Argosy, Stag, For Men Only, Male, Adventure, and Saga. In dramatic images of courage and physical prowess, Künstler captured the post-War bravado of the American male psyche across a broad range of themes: man vs. animal, heists and escapades, military conflicts, and Cold War espionage. The artist’s collaborations with pulp fiction authors included Mario Puzo, for whom he created the original visuals for The Godfather saga. Künstler’s larger-than-life role in the golden era of pulp fiction unfolds in more than 80 original illustrations from the artist’s private collection, almost all publicly exhibited for the first time.

Drawing—the use of lines to make an image—is one of the earliest forms of human expression. A Fine Line brings together permanent collection drawings from the late 19th and 20th centuries to showcase the enduring and infinite possibilities of this foundational medium. The exhibition includes impromptu sketches; preparatory studies for paintings, sculptures, and costume design; illustrations meant to accompany text; and drawings conceived as independent works of art.
