Description

    Dick Sprang - Recreation of the Cover Art for Batman #55 (1990). Dick Sprang was "The" Batman artist of the mid 40s to the early 50s, and many Batman collectors consider him to be the best. Unfortunately, very little vintage Sprang art exist. Fortunately, a very dedicated group of fans commissioned Sprang to do several recreations and specialty pieces in the early 90s. Very fortunately, the old master hadn't lost his touch, if anything, he got better. We have had the privilege of selling a few of these recreations for our consignors. Offered here is one of the finest -- the execution is flawless, the line work is masterful, and the colors are bold and vivid. This item comes with a certificate of authenticity from Sprang and a personal letter from Sprang to the original owners. The art measures 13" x 18".
