    Description

    Chester Gould - Original Illustration of Dick Tracy (undated). A truly rare find for any fan of Dick Tracy or Chester Gould, this oversized portrait of the square-jawed detective hung on the studio wall of Mad's Dave Berg for many years, acting as a source of inspiration and encouragement for the artist. A stunning piece, boldly drawn and colored, the only defect of note is a rather prominent horizontal crease that runs the length of the image at about the halfway point. This is a large piece, measuring a big 22.75" x 28" overall, and it is signed by Gould in the lower right. To the best of our knowledge, there has never been a piece like this offered for public sale before, making this a unique opportunity for any Tracy-phile.
