    Description

    Winsor McCay Little Nemo in Slumberland Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 1906 (New York Herald, 1906). We've only gotten to offer a few Little Nemo originals over the years, and this example may well be the best. The combination of the size and the outstanding condition, and McCay's penwork will command the attention of anyone who enters the room where it's hung! Santa Claus and his elves appear in this Christmas strip. And wouldn't we all like to journey to the fabulous department store visualized by McCay here? This is from just the second year of the feature, and note that Little Nemo and the Princess appear in every panel. The artwork is on two separate pieces of Bristol board, the top one 21.5" x 13", the bottom 21.5" x 14". The overall size of the framed piece is 30" x 38".
