    Description

    Alex Ross Superman:20th Century Painting Original Art (1998). As all informed Superman collectors know, the original art for the cover of Superman #1 never really existed since the image was culled from Joe Shuster's Action #10 splash page, which was photostatted and then slightly re-inked. This is the closest anyone may ever come to owning an original of the iconic image that is recognized world-wide. Superman takes to the skies in this sensational Alex Ross painting, the ultimate tribute to the Golden Age Superman art of Joe Shuster and Wayne Boring. It was used to create a limited edition lithograph for Warner Bros., and a series of signed giclee prints, as well as a large regular edition poster run, all of which have sold out, attesting to the enormous popularity and impact of this image on the fans who have seen it. This super-spectacular painting has an image area of 15.5" x 22", and it has been matted to an overall size of 23.5" x 31". The art is in Excellent condition, and Ross signed the piece at the lower right.
