    Description

    Burne Hogarth Drago Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 7-7-46 (New York Post, 1946). We have never offered a Burne Hogarth Drago strip before! All of Hogarth's considerable artistic talents are well displayed on this great Sunday that features Drago's horse Diablo, the lovely Senorita Darby, and some fantastic examples of both his light and shadow work, and this ability to draw realistic clothing. Not surprising that many years later, he actually wrote art books on many of those very subjects! Considered an "artist's artist", Hogarth's original art is highly-prized. This piece was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 19.75" x 26". The logo and credit are modern-day photocopy replacements. There is a bit of paste-up glue residue near it, and also a stain in the lower center. The board is very toned, folded horizontally between the middle tiers, with pinholes in the margin. Overall in Good condition.

    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.
