    Star Trek: The Next Generation, Angosia III by Syd Dutton (Paramount, 1990). Very Fine. Original Screen-Used Oil Matte Painting on Masonite in Frame (66" X 34") Episode 3X11 -- "The Hunted."
    Star Trek and sci-fi fans in general won't want to to miss this beautiful piece of futuristic vision, a remnant from a time gone by in the world of special effect artistry being offered for the first time at Heritage. Once known as one of the foremost matte painting companies form 1985 to their unfortunate closure in 2009, the Illusion Arts studio created hundreds of paintings to be used in a wide range of movies, television shows, and even music videos. Co-founder Syd Dutton, a personal protégé of matte painting master Albert Whitlock, was a favorite artist for the much beloved Star Trek television series, his work spanning through both the T.V. episodes into the movies. This beautiful illustration of Angosia III's capital city, yet another stunning piece from Dutton for the artist's incredible attention to detail and sense of perspective, can be seen as a pan shot within the opening minutes of the Star Trek: The Next Generation thought-provoking Episode 3x11, "The Hunted." Signed by the artist, this screen-used matte painting shows soft surface scuffs and small surface lifts in the bottom left and at the center top. There are what appear to be adhesive remnants in the middle, most likely from the production process, but these are barely noticeable and do not interrupt the grand presentation of this piece. Due to the size/weight of this lot, shipping costs may be higher than usual.
