Lot #418: Garth Williams' Preliminary Pencil Sketch of a Tearful Fern for Page 2 of ''Charlotte's Web'' -- Initialed by the Artist


In this sketch, Garth Williams draws Fern's reaction to her father's plan to kill Wilbur in this preliminary pencil illustration for E.B. White's 1952 children's book ''Charlotte's Web''. Williams initials the 3.75'' x 11'' page fragment ''GW'' at the lower right and numbers it ''3.16325'' on the verso. There are hardly any original ''Charlotte's Web'' drawings on the market any more. Minor creasing, else near fine condition. From the Heritage Auctions auction of Garth Williams estate in April 2011.
