    Description

    Virgil Ross - Sylvester and Daffy Duck Illustration (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). Sylvester chases a laughing Daffy Duck, in this original illustration by legendary animator Virgil Ross. Sylvester and Daffy appeared together only a few times; this scene is similar to the 1980 TV cartoon segment "The Yolk's on You," which was part of a special, Daffy Duck's Easter Egg-Citement. Mr. Ross was a long-time animator for Warner Brothers, going back to the 1930s. He worked with directors Tex Avery, Bob Clampett, and Friz Freleng, before moving on to Hanna-Barbera and Filmation in the '60s and '70s. My Ross received the coveted Winsor McCay Award in 1988. He drew this piece on a sheet of 12 field animation paper, with image sizes of 6" and 3.5". Fine condition. Signed in the lower right.

    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.
