Delos Palmer (1890-1960) studied at The Art Students League from 1911 to 1915 with the renowned American Impressionist, George Bellows.
In 1916 Palmer moved to the historic Holbein Studios at 139 West 55th Street. He worked there until 1920, when he moved to the more fashionable Greenwich Village, where he became a successful society portraitist.
The fateful market crash of 1929 ended Palmer’s high society portrait business, but he soon found work through his contacts at Liberty magazine’s MacFadden Publishing, which also produced several crime and detective magazines such as Master Detective and True Detective.
He then began to paint pulp covers for Dime Mystery, Clues, Frontier Stories, Action Stories, Western Trails, All Star Adventure, Complete Western Book, Spicy Western, Terror Tales, and Horror Stories. Most of his pulp covers are unsigned, but he was occasionally given printed credit for his cover paintings on the magazine contents page. (Source PulpArtists).
