    Medium/Size/Condition. The preliminary page is drawn in blue and black pencil on 8.5 x 11 inch paper. The inked page is drawn in brush, pen and ink on a lightweight Bristol board measuring 11 inches wide by 14 inches high. The stand-alone page depicts a businessman unsuccessfully trying to carry on an anonymous affair. Comparing the pencil version with the final drawing, one can see that Eisner edited the opening text, and the bottom two panels, distinct in the pencil, essentially blur together in the final. Both originals are in excellent condition and are mounted together with archival tape on textured tan mat board measuring 16 x 23 inches -- all you have to add is the frame and glass (a double-aperture mat is also recommended).

    Price: $1,750 for the lot of 2 pieces, matted.

    Provenance/Warranty: The guaranteed to be original art by Will Eisner and is further warranted to be from the Will Eisner estate, which is exclusively represented by the Denis Kitchen Art Agency. The agency's Bill of Sale serves as the ultimate provenance for any future resale.
