Fine Autographs and Artifacts
Boasting excellent and varied selections of animation artwork and John F. Kennedy material, RR Auction’s November Fine Autographs and Artifacts sale is one of the largest of the year. Highlights of the animation section include a preliminary concept painting of Pinocchio’s village by Gustaf Tenggren, vivid original concept art by Eyvind Earle and Mary Blair, and a multitude of production cels and drawings. Other top lots include an autograph letter by Charles Darwin on the voyage of the Challenger, a superior Pablo Picasso portrait, and letters by Winston Churchill and Chiang Kai-shek with terrific WWII-related content. JFK lots include several poignant pieces from his assassination—a Dallas police helmet and badge worn by an officer in the motorcade, a signed press release from LBJ announcing his death, and accouterments worn by a naval pallbearer as part of the Joint Casket Bearer Team at JFK’s state funeral.
