    Chuck Jones The Dream Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner Oil Painting (1984). This painting of Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner is by legendary Warner Brothers director Chuck Jones (1913-2002) the creator of these very characters. He was an Academy Award winner, animator, producer, studio head, filmmaker, and a very important artist in his own right. His original paintings are the holy grail for Jones collectors and they do not come up for sale often. This oil on canvas painting of Wile E. Coyote dreaming of finally catching the Road Runner is appropriately titled "The Dream" and is signed by the artist, dated 1984. It's matted and framed with an opening of 23.5" x 10.5", in a 32" x 28" frame. The color and composition of this piece makes it a true masterpiece by an artist of immeasurable talent. Condition is Fine.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
