"I think it was three days ago I first became aware -- that in my comb were caught a couple pieces of my hair." Double-page illustration for pages 2 and 3 of "Parts" by Tedd Arnold (New York: Dial Books for Young Readers, 1997). Colored pencil and watercolor washes on paper. 330x533 mm; 13x21 inches, image. Signed, titled, and dated 1996 in lower right margin. Provenance: Collection of Robert and Alice Dornish. Exhibited: Kutztown University Sharadin Gallery, January, 2005.
Estimate $4,000 - 6,000
A funny and relatable image from the award-winning and prolific author/illustrator Arnold. The amusing story and energetic images reassure children of all ages that it is perfectly normal for one's body to act like a series of "parts" that come unglued on a regular basis.
