The Art of Ralph Bakshi
This auction features an unprecedented collection of Ralph Bakshi's artwork from his often controversial, but undeniably, groundbreaking career. There are over 200 lots highlighting works from Fritz the Cat, Wizards, Lord of the Ring, Coonskin, Cool World, Heavy Traffic, Hey Good Lookin', American Pop, and more--many originally acquired from Bakshi's personal collection. In addition to original sketches, production drawings and animation cels, promotional materials for the aforementioned films are included in this exciting offering. Works from The Nine Lives of Fritz the Cat are also in the mix. Although Bakshi did not work on Nine Lives, that film was clearly inspired by Bakshi and would not have come into being without the original Fritz film. This is the first time that Bakshi?s art has been assembled in this large a capacity and offered for sale. In particular, original Fritz the Cat cels are extremely rare. Blacksparrow is pleased to be the caretaker for this single-owner collection. For more information, please contact us at (323) 250-3980 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
