Rare sequence of 2 original plates (4 and 5) by Franz for the Volume 8 of his favourite hero Lester Cockney: ‘Oregon Trail’, a beautiful set which renders perfectly the moment of the hero’s passage. After making him live exciting adventures across Asia and Europe, Franz sends his hero to explore new spaces of freedom in the New World. The central panel of plate n°4 shows Lester leaving the marks of his travels in the sand. This is therefore a real turning point in the wanderings of the hero supported as usual by the masterful drawing of Franz who obviously take a particular pleasure in drawing his hero crossing the great meadows on horseback...
Both plates are signed and dated (although drawn in 1996, the album was not released until 2005 after the death of the artist).
Indian ink on light cardstock. Size: 46 x 36 cm for each plate.
