    WILL EISNER (1917-2005)Fagin the Jew (2003) Page 29 (unpublished).

    Eisner’s next-to-last graphic novel was Fagin the Jew, an examination of the villain in Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist. Based on his own research into the era and the original editions of Oliver Twist, Eisner tells Fagin's own story and context, while also portraying the prejudice, poverty and anti-Semitism prevalent in much of classic literature. This page, for reasons unknown, did not appear in the published book by either Doubleday or Dark Horse.

    Size/Medium/Condition: In Fagin, Eisner utilized “wash,” diluted India ink that allowed for a rich array of gray tones alongside his dramatic black line art. In fact, on this particular page, the bottom half is entirely wash, with no hard black lines whatever. The large original measures 14 by 17 inches on heavy 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.
