George Gross (1909 – 2003) was a great pulp magazine cover artist. His first pulp cover assignments were for Mystery Novels Magazine and Double Action Western, which were produced by Winford Publications. George Gross next found work at Fiction House, where he became their top cover artist.

His father, David Gross, attended Pratt Institute and had a successful art career in the fashion industry. The father owned and operated a midtown art studio called Fashion Paper. In June of 1927 George Gross graduated from high school. That fall he began to attend Pratt, as his father had before him.

In June of 1931 George Gross graduated from Pratt. Even before graduation he worked for his father at Fashion Paper. He was soon joined by both of his younger siblings, Arthur and Beatrice Gross. The Gross family business provided George with a uniquely practical approach to commercial illustration.

In 1936 the father formed a new art agency, called the Nangro Ferrod Studios, at relocated to 15 West 38th Street in Manhattan. George Gross shared his studio space at this company with his brother and sister. He produced all of his pre-war pulp covers at this studio.
