    Description

    Curt Swan - Superman #201 Cover Recreation (DC, 1994). After Joe Shuster, the artist most commonly associated with the Man of Steel is Curt Swan, who defined the look of Superman for an entire generation of fans. Heroic yet human, untouchable yet vulnerable, Swan was able to illustrate a character that was both familiar and alien at the same time. While Superman was an icon, Clark Kent was just a mild-mannered everyman. Nowhere is this dichotomy more clear than on the classic cover recreated here, in which "Clark Kent Abandons Superman!" Fully rendered in lush, fluid pencils on artboard, this piece is a true homage to the Man of Tomorrow. It measures approximately 18" x 25" and is signed by the artist in the lower right corner. A large color copy of the original cover (in several pieces) also signed by Swan, is included with this lot.
