Virgil Finlay - "A Midsummer Night's Dream," page 71 Illustration Original Art (Popular Fiction Publishing Co., 1935). Illustrations by Virgil Finlay were both a popular and a critical success. As illustration historian Jim Vadeboncoeur Jr. has pointed out, "Finlay's work was an immediate hit with the readers and the writers. Readers wrote in praising the illustrations. H.P. Lovecraft wrote him fan letters and even composed a poem about his art. Finlay was a fan of the genre as well as one of the most talented artists to enter the field. These combined to provide his work with a power and grace unknown in the pulps." The caption for this scene from Act IV, Scene I, of A Midsummer Night's Dream reads, "I know you two are rival enemies; How comes this gentle concord in the world?" The illustration has an image area that measures 7" x 5.25", and the art is in Excellent condition.
