    WILL EISNER (1917-2005)To the Heart of the Storm (1991) Page 74. “Eisner’s parents meet/self-portrait.”

    Will Eisner’s most overtly autobiographical work is To The Heart of the Storm, the story of his own family and their multi-generational struggle with anti-Semitism. In this critical page we learn how Eisner’s mother, Fanny Ingber, a Rumanian Jew, met Austrian Jew and painter Shmuel “Samuel” Eisner, Will’s father. The young man listening intently in the lower right is a self-portrait of the teenage Will Eisner.

    Medium/Size/Condition: Drawn with brush, pen, ink, and grease pencil on 11 x 14-inch Bristol board. Excellent condition.

    Provenance: The Will Eisner estate is exclusively represented by the Denis Kitchen Art Agency, an affiliate of Steve Krupp’s Curio Shoppe and Gallery. This drawing is warranted to be an authentic original created by Will Eisner, and sold on behalf of his estate. Note: Image is © Will Eisner Studios, Inc.
