    Description

    Bernie Wrightson Frankenstein Unused Chapter 7 Preliminary Original Art (c. 1977-83). This preliminary layout illustration was a rough design by Wrightson as he worked on various spot illustrations and Chapter header pieces for Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's Frankenstein. The work was released by Marvel in 1983 and it stands as one of Bernie Wrightson's most defining works. This particular study defines the moment in which Justine has been framed by the Creature for the murder of Dr. Frankenstein's brother William. It was one of several plates which Wrightson decided to not use in the published book. The blue ink piece has a matted image area of 4.5" x 8". It is matted out to 8.5" x 11.75". Signed by Wrightson in the lower margin and 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.
