”Prince Valiant” Sunday Artwork by Hal Foster From 1939 — Perhaps the Most Recognizable Artwork by Hal Foster From ”Prince Valiant”, the Majestic Andelkrag Castle

One of the greatest pieces of artwork by Hal Foster in his career, the original artwork for the 120th ”Prince Valiant” Sunday comic strip from 28 May 1939. In this instantly recognizable piece — featured on the cover of Fantagraphics’ ”Prince Valiant Vol. 2: 1939-1940” and in numerous ”Prince Valiant” publications — Val sees the foreboding castle of Andelkrag in person, surrounded by Huns as they prepare to attack it. The six panel strip measures 26” x 34.5”, (the large Andelkrag panel measures 17” x 21” by itself), with incredible detail showing the seemingly impregnable fortress, the mountains behind it, the flames roiling up aside it and Prince Valiant standing upon a hillside, gazing at its beauty and enormity. In this strip, Val makes his approach and plunges into the river moat at darkness, to find a fire-raft built by the Huns in order to destroy Andelkrag’s bridge. As Prince Valiant destroys their handiwork, the Huns vow revenge in return. Artwork is signed by Foster on the second panel, inscribed to ”Edward W. Larson / with friendly greetings / Hal Foster”. With King Features Syndicate, Inc. label on fifth panel, with 1939 copyright. The date of 28 May 1939 appears on the fourth panel, along with ”120”, the number of this Prince Valiant strip in the life of the series. Artwork is mounted to board and matted to a size of 33” x 41.5”, with matting strips separating the panels. With minute amount of soiling, artwork is in near fine condition. Accompanied by the color newsprint of this artwork and two ”Prince Valiant” books featuring this strip. Sold for $70,461.

Strip originally appeared on Halloween, 31 October 1965. Schulz’ autograph inscription beneath the title reads: ”Best Wishes – Charles Schulz” in blue ink. United Features Syndicate label is affixed to 12th panel, although the year has been cut out. Measures 24” x 17”. Toning, with notations to border from production. Very good condition.

James Montgomery Flagg Signed Sketch of His Most Famous American Artwork: Uncle Sam’s ”I Want You!”, Created for World War I Recruitment — Measures 24.5” x 34.5”, Incredibly Scarce

Exceptionally scarce original charcoal sketch created and signed by James Montgomery Flagg of his iconic ”I Want You!” artwork, used by the U.S. Army in 1917 to recruit for World War I. Perhaps nothing embodies the physical representation of America more than this artwork, which finally put a face to ”Uncle Sam”, the nickname for the United States since the Revolutionary War. In the build-up to America’s entry into WWI, this image was originally featured on the 6 July 1916 cover of Leslie magazine with the text ”What are you doing for preparedness?”. The words ”I Want You” were added in February 1917, shortly after the U.S. intercepted code from Germany, encouraging Mexico to ally itself with Germany to fight the United States. Recognizing that war was imminent, the U.S. Army ordered posters for recruitment efforts, and an American icon was born. Likely created in the early 1940s, when the image was also used for WWII recruitment, this is the only known original artwork by Flagg of his iconic creation, apart from the 1916 original. Measures 24.5” x 34.5”. Tape along top edge on verso, and affixed to mat at bottom left corner. Light rippling along top and bottom edge and minimal charcoal offsetting near bottom. Overall in very good to near fine condition, striking in its size and presentation. Sold for $25,000.
