Auction Description for Thomaston Place: ONE DAY AUCTION - THE LOST DRAWINGS OF G. WACHSTETER
Viewing Notes:
ONE DAY AUCTION: SUNDAY, March 24, 2032 - 11:00 AM. We are honored to bring to the podium "The Lost Drawings of George Wachsteter", an extraordinary auction of one of the foremost and most prolific caricaturists of the 20th century. This will be the one and only opportunity to acquire a portion of this collection, and to own a piece of entertainment history.
Sale Notes:
George Wachsteter (1911-2004) was considered to be one of the most prominent and in-demand caricaturists working in the country. From the 1930's to the 1960's he drew theatrical, radio, television and film related images for most of the major New York newspapers. Although he was the resident arts caricaturist for William Randolph Hearst New York Journal, later the Journal American, as well as syndicated to 100s of newspapers across the country, he was also occasional contributor to the New York Times, even during Hirshfeld's tenure, most notably the rendition of the Broadway sensation Oklahoma which graced the front page of the New York Times in 1945. A gradual loss of his vision ended his drawing career prematurely in the late 1960's and he lived in relative obscurity with his wife in Elmhurst Queens till his death in 2004. In March, 2008, The Waldemar A. Schmidt Gallery of Wartburg College, Iowa, presented "The Lost Drawings of George Wachsteter: A 30 Year Retrospective." His life works, including paintings, sketches and drawings, were found in boxes after his death in 2004. Art Director Mathew Wilson worked with Wachsteter's family and estate to archive the collection for this exhibition. Among the pieces in "Lost Drawings" were drawings and watercolors of performers like Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Humphrey Bogart, Jackie Gleason, Bob Hope, Milton Berle, Jerry Lewis, Zero Mostel, Ed Sullivan and Johnny Carson.
