Little Known Facts About Mort Künstler

Saga

...Mort Künstler did this painting for the March 1964 issue of Saga Magazine?

President Kennedy was shot on Friday, November 22, 1963. The next day Mort Künstler was in the offices of MacFadden Publications to talk over the kind of cover the magazine wanted. Saga was not a newsmagazine and had deadlines that were two to three months in advance of the publication date. Mort Künstler went home and worked all day Sunday to produce this painting in time for their March 1964 issue, delivering it on Monday November 25. The magazine was on newsstands less than two months later!
