    Description

    Dave McKean - Sandman Unpublished Painting Original Art (undated). Sandman... Lord Morpheus... Dream of the Endless. This immortal being was the star of Neil Gaiman's smash-hit Sandman. Dave McKean's covers were influential in setting the tone of the book and making it clear that this isn't a cape-and-cowl superhero book... it was a fairy tale for adults. Here we have an unpublished commission piece featuring Dream wearing one of his items of power... the Helm of Dream. It appeared in Sandman #1 in Dream's quest to regain his objects of power. Dave McKean pieces such as this do not come to market often, so this is sure to be a dream-come-true for some collector! Created in oil paint on layers of paper sections affixed to a bright white 11.75" x 16.5" Bristol board. Signed in the lower margin, and in Excellent condition.
