You might recall this illustration from among the American Illustrators commemorative stamps issued by the U.S. Postal Service in 2000. Just this morning I received a brochure from Swann Auction Galleries in which it appeared with the notice that the original oil painting on canvas is scheduled to be sold at auction on 7 June. It is expected to sell for US$40,000 to $60,000. That's about one per cent of what a not-very-good Jackson Pollock painting would bring. I'm not saying that any Pollocks are much good, but that's a personal opinion. It's also the reason why I created a blog dedicated to this subject. Click on the image below to enlarge it.
