    Description

    George Wilson Grimm's Ghost Stories #4 Cover Original Art (Western/Gold Key, 1972). Wilson, the Norman Rockwell of horror comics, was often the chief selling-point of the Gold Key chiller titles. This splendid painting catches Wilson at a plateau of accomplishment -- juxtaposing a forbidding Egyptian tomb and a rampaging mummy with a cozy middle-class bedroom and a terrified child. Seldom has the classic psychological metaphor of the "violated bedchamber" been more vividly illustrated.
    Densely layered gouache on heavy-duty Bainbridge illustration board. Image area, 11" x 16". Light marginal toning. 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.
