    Description

    Winsor McCay American Family Tax Editorial Cartoon Illustration Original Art (New American, c. early 1900s). Almost 100 years later, and some things never change. Truly one of the fathers of both the American comic strip and animated cartoons, Winsor McCay was renowned for his landmark works, Little Nemo In Slumberland and Dreams of the Rarebit Fiend. In addition, McCay was a prolific editorial cartoonist of his day, possessing a fine eye and dry wit for the events of the time. This timeless original has an overall size of 19" x 10". Only the dollar amount has changed, the sentiment remains the same. There is some overall paper aging and light soiling; otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition. Signed by Winsor McCay at the bottom right.

    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.
