Walter Lantz Original Oil Painting Woody Woodpecker

07 Apr

Extremely scarce original painting by Walter Lantz, oil on canvas, 9.5 x 7.5, showing Woody Woodpecker next to a bowl of fruit. Painting is signed in black paint in the lower left, “Walter Lantz,” and signed and inscribed on the wooden canvas stretchers on the reverse, “To Russ and Sue—best wishes, Walter Lantz.” Reverse of the canvas also bears a partially affixed ‘Walter Lantz Happy Art’ label and a Lantz copyright stamp. Attractively cloth-matted and framed to an overall size of 14 x 12. In fine condition, with a few chips and marks to stretchers affecting a bit of the last name of signature. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from JSA. An outstanding and highly desirable painting of Lantz’s most famous character—only the second we have ever offered. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
