DescriptionRobert Crumb The Life and Death of Fritz the Cat Cover Original Art (Fantagraphics, 1993). Robert Crumb's classic feline character started out as a family pet back in the late 1950s, and evolved to superstardom through Robert's comic strips (which originally appeared in the pages of Harvey Kurtzman's Help! magazine) and two notorious 1970s animated feature films. In fact, the experience of dealing with the Hollywood types who hounded him about the first film project caused Crumb to abruptly kill off the character in the pages of The People's Comics, in 1972. This cover is for a collected volume of Fritz stories, published in 1993, and is one of the last times Crumb has drawn the character to date, save for one Complete Crumb Comics cover appearance in 1996. This piece has an image area of approximately 10" x 12.5", matted to an overall size of 16.75" x 19.5", and is 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.View More Testimonials
