Lot No. 1493

Manufacturer: Ted CoConis

Artist: Ted CoConis

Description: Ted CoConis (American 1927 - ) oil on board of Woton, Father of the Valkyries, a commission done for Columbia Records for the cover of a Eugene Ormandy recording of Ride of the Valkyries. CoConis is best known as an illustrator but has been doing amazing paintings of beautiful women in Paris which place him in the fine art category as well. In 2013 he was formally elected into the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame. The image of Woton was one of two sent to Columbia and was Mr. CoConis’ favorite but the other was chosen for the album cover. Signed center right just under Woton’s outstretched left arm. Take time to study Woton for there are many hidden images to be seen. Sight size is 29 1/2 square and with its nice frame, 34 3/4 inches square. Excellent original condition.

Estimate: $700.00 - $900.00
