    Description

    Harvey Kurtzman - Help! Sketch Original Art and Hand-signed Letter (1963). In response to a fan's request, Harvey Kurtzman sent two ink and grey wash on paper panels, presumably from the magazine he was editing at the time, Help! Each panel measures approximately 3" x 4.75", and the accompanying letter, signed in faded color marker by Kurtzman, is on 5.5" x 8" Help! stationary. All three pieces were taped to a 10" x 8" blue illustration board, with a hand-written note from the original owner. The art is in Very Good condition. Samples of Kurtzman art are always tough to find! From the Estate of Bruce Hamilton.

    ‡ The owner placed a late bid on this unreserved lot and repurchased it, subject to applicable commission.
