RR Autograph Auctions Walter Lantz Woody WoodpeckerExtremely scarce original painting by Walter Lantz, oil on canvas, entitled ‘Liberty Bell,’ 19.25 x 16.5, depicting Woody Woodpecker looking unhappy with a broken beak presumably from flying into the Liberty Bell behind him.

Painting is signed in black paint in the lower right, “Walter Lantz 1979.” Framed to an overall size of 26 x 22. In very fine condition. Provenance: Christie’s, 1994.
