    Art Spiegelman The New Yorker 5-11-98 Cover Preliminary Original Art Group of 2 (Condé Nast, 1998). A tender and touching commentary on how the roles of women have changed, and yet stay the same. It's a powerful piece in is sublime simplicity. Included in the group are two of his prelims, the first on the far right is the rough concept piece in bold black ink on top of the multicolor pencil build-up he uses to construct his images. The one of the far left is a more detailed piece created just before a fully painted version would be attempted. This piece is crafted in blue, black, and red pencils. Both pieces are signed and dated in the 11" x 15" image areas. They are handsomely matted with a tearsheet of the printed cover between them, then Plexiglas front framed out to 37" x 21". In Excellent 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.
