    Description

    Jack Pierce Collection - The Bride of Frankenstein (Universal, 1935). Original Art (15.5" X 17"). Frederic "Feg" Murray, a prolific cartoonist who created the famous 1930's 'Seein' Stars' cartoon strip showcasing Hollywood's finest, was born in San Francisco, California on May 15, 1894. He was a direct descendant of the famous Mary Lindley Murray, whose well planned dinner party detained British General Howe and his officers long enough for the American troops to escape in 1776. This stunning December 20, 1936 top example of his rare original art has unique provenance. It comes directly from the collection of one of the greatest film make-up artists to ever work in the industry, Jack Pierce. A splendid ink rendering of Elsa Lanchester and Boris Karloff in full character with an explanation of the make-up that undoubtedly came from Pierce himself. What a find! Here is your chance to own an absolutely one-of-a-kind sci-fi/horror item. There is only minor discoloration in the taped on 'by-line' at the top center of the art, and minor edge wear in the top right corner where the art was removed from a scrapbook. From the Personal Collection of Jack Pierce. Very Fine.
