Nate D. Sanders Auctions Offers Original E.H. Shepard Drawing of Winnie-the-Pooh
LOS ANGELES, October 26, 2015—A watercolor and ink drawing of Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet, by illustrator E.H. Shepard, will be auctioned by Nate D. Sanders Auctions on October 29. Interested bidders may participate in the auction online.
A.A. Milne, the author of the children’s literary classic series “Winnie-the-Pooh,” selected E.H. Shepard to illustrate his books beginning in 1926. The illustration appears on a 1932 letter to Shepard’s agent Carter Brown. In the letter, Shepard told his agent he has “done splendidly” and “this view is shared by others.” To make his point more emphatic and further express his gratitude, Shepard sketched Winnie-the-Pooh reaching up and Piglet excitedly jumping at his side. It was extremely rare for Shepard to sketch Winnie-the-Pooh other than for specific book illustrations.
Shepard was born in London in 1879. After the turn of the century, Shepard developed a reputation for illustrating classic books such as “David Copperfield” and “Aesop’s Fables.” During World War I, he drew cartoons for the British weekly satirical magazine “Punch.” He contributed to “Punch” until 1945. Shepard achieved his greatest fame illustrating contemporary children’s literature. After Shepard had become a household name for his “Winnie-the-Pooh” drawings, he drew characters for Kenneth Grahame’s “The Wind in the Willows” in 1931. In 1969, the Victoria and Albert in London held a retrospective featuring over 300 of his drawings. Shepard passed away in 1976.

Norman Rockwell Portrait of Nixon
1960 signed Norman Rockwell portrait of Richard Nixon, done for the cover of the “Saturday Evening Post.” Charcoal on paper drawing measuring 16″ x 20.75″. Signed to lower right with the artist’s initials, “NR.” This portrait was a study for the 5 November 1960 cover of the Saturday Evening Post, which appeared amidst the presidential race one week after Rockwell’s cover portrait of Kennedy. Nixon portrait is in very good condition, with pinholes scattered along the edges, and remnants of adhesive from scotch tape scattered along the extreme edges (we can help you evaluate the condition of your Jessie Willcox Smith Illustration art). Corners of sheet fit into tissue pockets on backing. This study is all the more exceptional as it is the only remaining item from the Nixon-Rockwell portrait session, beyond the final portrait itself. Kennedy’s portrait, on the other hand, was lithographed in a limited edition of 2,500 and is therefore far more common than this portrait, which poignantly captures the subject’s personality that Rockwell is so famous for. Accompanied by 5 November 1960 copy of Saturday Evening Post featuring portrait on cover. Sold for $24,000.
