    Description

    Robert Crumb Kafka For Beginners (R. Crumb's Kafka) Pages 40-41 Original Art (Totem Books, 1993). Gregor Samsa's family and Chief Clerk from his firm are shocked to find him transformed into a giant insect, in these two pages from Kafka' famous story, The Metamorphosis. Crumb's use of oddly tilted panels heightens the bizarre nature of Kafka's 1915 novella. These are nice, full pages, with Crumb's hand-lettered word balloons (one balloon is a paste-up piece that has one edge starting to lift up). Ink and graphite on blue-lined Bristol board, with an approximate image area of 13.5" x 9.75"; matted and framed with Plexiglas together for an overall size of 23.75" x 19.5". The art is in Excellent condition, with the second page signed by Crumb.

    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.
