Edgar Rice Burroughs/P. J. Monahan Art Gallery

In his day and age, P. J. Monahan was THE artist for Edgar Rice Burroughs.

From the teen years to the early twenties of the 20th Century, Monahan's artwork graced the pulp covers featuring the stories of Edgar Rice Burroughs more than any other artist.

He was the equivalent of Frank Frazetta at the time, and his Tarzan was the definitive vision -- receding hairline and all.

Here's are some sneak peak images from the ERB Art Chronology: Volume One chapter which focuses on Monahan's art:
