This is the Signed original Pencil & Wash by Fortunino Matania.

In 1934 and 1935 Matania illustrated several science fiction stories serialised in the magazine The Passing Show. This original pencil, wash and watercolour drawing was painted to illustrate a scene from the story When Worlds Collide by Edwin Balmer and Philip Wylie. It is rare to find SF illustrations from this period particularly by such a talented master as Matania.

This art is reproduced in the book Drawing From History: The Forgotten Art of Fortunino Matania.
