Comment: What a great picture by one of the very best painters of the great illustrators with a heyday from the 1930's through the 1950's. For those of you who hadn't read the story of this picture when it was listed previously… Long story (kinda) short::: This was owned by legendary collector Charles Martignette who sold it through Illustration House in a 1995 auction. It was then consigned to me by the person who bought it at IH… I came that close (holding my fingers 3mm apart) to selling it a couple times. The consignor was interested in turning it into $$, so I purchased it outright… had the small areas of flaking paint attended to and put it in a new frame with plexi. While I was waiting for the completion of the restoration work I somehow managed to ding the upper right corner of the frame. It's aggravating to me but not much I can do about that now. At the end of the day, I bought the frame mainly to protect the art and not necessarily to serve as its permanent home. If I was keeping this, I'd give it a grander presentation. Includes a copy of the magazine

Price: $3,750 (+ $120 domestic shipping)
