Morgan, Wallace

Price: $1,650.00

Description: Elegant luncheon crowd

Comment: Collecting is an adventure… be it coins, baseball cards, cars or illustration art. Consistently one of my favorite illustrators has been Wallace Morgan. I believe in candor. Speaking of which, this piece is more expensive than just about anything of his that's appeared on the auction market in the past twenty years. That said, I think one would be hard-pressed to find a better encapsulation of the era, from Morgan or anyone else. Maybe what this really shows is how affordable the collecting of American illustration art can be.

Price: $1,650 (includes domestic shipping)
