A beautiful plate from the second volume in the Karl May series, “Winnetou” (1963), with all main characters and a crucial scene (death of Tangua). The page featured Winnetou, Old Shatterhand, Winnetou’s father and sister - Intshu Tshuna and Nsho Tshi, plus the “bad guys” Tangua and Rattler.
The first 2 Karl May books were made by Vandersteen himself in pencil, after which Karel Verschuere inked the illustrations. After this book, the drawing work was largely taken over by the studio, so only the first 2 books feature real work y Vandersteen.
The page consists of 2 separate strips, together forming page 21 (size: 33 x 47 cm).
The page is in good condition; there are yellow traces of glue, but the illustrations are undamaged.
The book is shown for reference, as is the printed page, but the book is not part of this lot.
The page will be shipped by registered post, packed in hardboard.
