Description: Preliminary studies for covers of The Saturday Evening Post.
Provenance: Directly from the descendants of the Artist
Comment: Whether it's Steve Dohanos or any number of other illustrators whose works I've sold over the years, I think it's always of primary interest to see the thought process and the creative steps that it takes to get from a blank surface to an iconic image… in these cases, magazine cover images. Interesting to note the differences from the sketches to the covers as published… all three printed versions are readily findable on the mighty internet and I'll not take up room today to show something so easy to find. None of the magazines are included in the purchase price(s).
Price: $1,500 each + $60 domestic shipping –- or –- $3,750 (+ $60 shipping) group of three
