Pauline Sullivan, illustration original, water color, “The Monkey’s Paw” 1942
Regular price $600.00
Signed by Pauline Sullivan and sent to William Jacobs at Warner Brothers, this wonderful illustration, perhaps storyboard material, came marked as being from the highly influential Associated American Artists group who left their stamp on mid-century America’s textiles, book design and record covers, housewares and advertising. In a strange reversal of its “market to the masses” philosophy, many early AAA prints which sold originally for $5 go to art collectors for thousands of dollars today. As a clearing house for the most forward-thinking painters and designers of the period, Associated American Artists operated very successfully as a disseminator of artistic talent. The cardboard mailer was dated 12/17/42 and sent from AAA’s New York Office.
