wraparound cover painted by Alex Ross painted for trade paperback; matted 25" x 31"It's rare that an artist almost single handedly changes the direction of the entire comic industry, but an argument can be made for the work of Alex Ross. His classical style combines painstaking photorealism with boundless imagination and evokes both the immersive Americana of Norman Rockwell and the twilight dreamscapes of the Golden Age. Collectors salivate over each Ross piece that makes its way to market, with his painted masterpieces fetching record prices.
First and most impressively, we offer this stunning piece Ross created for the recent reprint of the classic 1980's Marv Wolfman/George Perez History of the DC Universe. The vast scope of DC's past is masterfully rendered in the artist's uncanny hyper-realistic style, every detail minutely designed to create an effect that is magically both intimate and overwhelming. We've displayed this piece at recent conventions, and art fans who have seen it in person have been unfailiingly moved and impressed. One of the gems of this auction, and a must-have for any and all DC hero art collectors.
Art is in excellent condition and measures 19" x 25" and 25" x 31" matted.
