Original drawings by Marten Toonder have always been very rare. In 2010, the physical part of Toonder’s estate - the original drawings and letters and the like created by Marten Toonder himself - was included in the collection of the Dutch Literary Museum, and is therefore owned by the Dutch state.
When the fame of Marten Toonder Studios reached its peak, the weekly magazine “Tom Poes Weekblad” was launched. In this weekly magazine young studio workers (including Hans G. Kresse, Piet Wijn, Frits Godhelp en Henk Sprenger) had a chance to publish their comics. Between 1947 and 1951 a total of 188 issues were published.
This lot includes the very large original drawing for the cover of number 2 of the second year of Tom Poes Weeklblad. This drawing is probably made by Marten Toonder himself while the beautiful colouring is by Wim Mensen. To my knowledge a cover design for the Tom Poes Weekblad has never been auctioned before.
Very good condition. The publication (shown in picture 3) is not included in this lot. Huge drawing with a perfect composition, nice action, beautiful ink lines and Toonder’s characteristic humour. Extremely rare museum piece.
