THE ART IS IN FINE CONDITION, FULLY MATTED AND FRAMED TO A FINISHED SIZE OF: 20.75 x 15 An original drawing in pen and ink of a chameleon, the original work of art is a presentation piece both signed and inscribed by Eric Carle to his close personal friend and peer, Bill Halloran (who was a worldwide educational consultant on childrens literature). This drawing was located on a blank page of the book (page size is 11.25 x 8.25) titled The Mixed-Up Chameleon, written and illustrated by Eric Carle.
The stunning ink drawing has been matted and framed to include both the page with the original Carle drawing along with a beautiful matching page from the book also showing the chameleon in green. These have been framed together with fully archival materials and UV glass to protect the art. Unlike many artists and illustrators, Eric Carle did not dedicate or sell his art, with the exception of his few dedicated pieces going to a close personal friend, Bill Holloran. Other than these pieces, the balance of his personal collection were pledged to The Eric Carle Museum Of Picture Book Art. As such, his original artwork in any form is extremely scarce and only one gallery currently even sells any works of Carles.See the Michelson Galleries for additional information on Eric Carle and his art. The original book from which the pages were removed and framed will accompany the art. A wonderful piece of original original early Eric Carle artwork.
