    Description

    John Calmette Batman: The Animated Series Painting (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). A striking image by one of the most influential of the background artists who worked on the smash hit Batman: The Animated Series. Taking some of its art deco inspiration from the legendary Max Fleischer Superman shorts from the 1940s, this series was incredibly influential. It helped to raise the bar on the artistic production values of animation produced for television: Disney's Gargoyles and Marvel's Spiderman quickly followed suit. This moody, atmospheric piece shows a steely-faced Batman, standing in front of a full moon and an ominous red sky, as his cape billows around him and he clinches his fist. Calmette (along with Bruce Timm) was one of the artists who gave the TV series its very distinctive look, with moody and mysterious film noir inspired backgrounds. Canvas is signed by artist. An acrylic on unframed stretched canvas that measures 24" x 36". In Fine Condition.
