Treasures from the collections of our collectors
As the original ground zero of the pop-surrealism explosion, we are routinely offered previously owned pieces from prominent collectors and estates. In years past, we’ve been able to offer some incredible works from some of the originators of lowbrow alongside recognizable museum exhibited work and pieces that can honestly be considered blue-chip contemporary work, and this year is no exception. We’ve got incredible, original pieces from Sergio Aragones to XNO, with people like Gary Baseman, Joe Coleman and Robert Williams in between. There are also masterpieces of modern comic book art by everyone from Mike Allred to Mike Zulli, with key pages from Batman, Iron Man, X-Men and plenty of other award-winning runs from writers like Grant Morrison and Neil Gaiman.
How are we able to do this?
We won’t sell anything for less than it was originally priced–that ensures that the work offered is retaining its value, and a potentially good investment for those who care about that sort of thing. That said, we make sure that you can find no better deal elsewhere. That’s because we take a much lower percentage on the sale than anybody else. We want these pieces from our favorite collectors’ estates to find good, new homes.
If you’ve ever considered building a collection of important Lowbrow, Pop Surrealism, or contemporary illustration, you would be foolish not to start here–and if you’re looking to pad out an already substantial stable, you can do no better than this!
But you’ve got to act fast! When again will it be possible to own a complete Gary Panter comic book for less than rent? When was the last time you had your choice between two Camille Rose Garcia pieces–each for under $5,000? Or a semi-splash page from an Eisner Award winning run of Fables? There are tons of great deals like that.
April 15th will be your last chance to buy a lot of these. Talk to your accountant about writing off purchases for next quarter’s tax return. By purchasing art now, you may be saving yourself money down the line!
The collection is broken up into three distinct galleries.
The first is mostly from a single private collection. It includes paintings, photography, and rare lithographs from Shepard Fairey, Mark Ryden, Trevor Brown, Dean Karr, and Matt Mahurin, among others.
The second grouping is predominantly Works on Paper from some of the pioneers of Lowbrow and Pop Surrealism, like Sergio Aragones, Joe Coleman, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby, and Basil Wolverton. There are a lot of pieces from the artists who created the Underground.
The third grouping is from the Pop Sequentialism collection.
Some of the greatest moments from the last 25 years of superhero comicdom are included in this collection, which centers on the greatest writer-artist collaborations of the modern era.
Joss Whedon, Neil Gaiman, Grant Morrison, Brian Michael Bendis, Ed Brubaker, Warren Ellis, Matt Fraction, Mark Millar, J. Michael Straczynski, as well as Mike Allred, Tim Bradstreet, John Cassaday, Olivier Coipel, Steve Epting, J.G. Jones, Salvador Larroca, Steve McNiven, Frank Quitely, John Romita Jr., and J.H. Williams III, are the architects behind the comics recently adapted as blockbuster movies and hit TV Shows.
Scenes that made it into those films, and which originated in the comics, are contained in these pages from Batman, Captain America, Hellblazer (aka Constantine), Iron Man, Justice League, Powers, The Punisher, Spiderman, All-Star Superman, Teen Titans, Thor, Wolverine, and the X-Men.
All are graphite and ink on illustration board unless otherwise noted. Most are signed by one or more of the creators. Each Pop Sequentialism art purchase comes with a free 80-page, signed catalog, too.
Obviously, all of these are unique pieces of original art.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get work from these artists affordably.
