    Academy Awards Portfolio (International Sales Services, 1962). Fine+. Art Prints (132) (8.25" X 10.5) with Original Portfolio Folders (2) (8.5" X 11") Nicholas Volpe Artwork. Academy Award Winners.
    Offered in this lot are portrait drawings by artist Nicholas Volpe. Volpe created a portrait drawing of every winner of the Oscar for Best Actor and Best Actress from 1928 to 1961, and most of those portraits are collected in these two portfolios. Portraits include Elizabeth Taylor, Susan Hayward, Charlton Heston, James Stewart, Simone Signoret, David Niven, Audrey Hepburn, Maximilian Schell, Grace Kelly, Ginger Rogers, Olivia de Havilland, Humphrey Bogart, Joan Crawford, Sophia Loren, and many more. Unrestored items with overall very presentable appearances. They may have edge and corner wear, creases, pinholes, small tears, moderate paper lifts, smudges, toning, foxing, or stains including noticeable adhesive stains with paper remnants. A few of the art prints also have some adhesive residue. The portfolio folders display the worst of the wear. The two portfolios are identical to each other, and each contains 66 of the original 69 art prints. Each collection of prints is missing Katharine Hepburn (1933 Best Actress), Claudette Colbert (1934 Best Actress), and Clark Gable (1934 Best Actor).
