DescriptionAlex Raymond Esquire August 1940 Pin-up Preliminary Artwork Original Art (Esquire Publishing, 1940). A very rare pin-up style image by the legendary Alex Raymond! This pure graphite prelim study for the final painting was produced on 23.75" x 18.5" onionskin paper. There is a tear in the paper on the upper right, and it was long-ago folded to approximately 12.5" tall (not through the art, only hiding the blank bottom area of the page). It is accompanied by a printed tear sheet from the published issue, a COA from Russ Cochran (who originally purchased it directly from Mrs. Alex Raymond), and page showing that it was listed for sale in Collector's Showcase #73 (November, 1984). A great looking piece and a true treasure for any Alex Raymond fans! The original art is in Very Good condition.
