Early Aviation Illustration by Eric Sloane

January 7, 2020 |  by  |  Comments Off on Early Aviation Illustration by Eric Sloane

Humorous original pen and ink illustration by Eric Sloane, N.A., likely intended for a WW II-era magazine such as Pegasus or Air Trails. Most certainly Sloane drew this during the Second World War. The illustration depicts a comically armed medium range bomber, complete with fuselage art depicting a dove (the bird of peace) with an olive branch in it’s beak and titled “Good Will Flight”. Two pilots stand looking over the aircraft, with one saying to the other “The general never believed in subtlety”.

Completely re-framed in acid free materials, UV glass, and a superb mat and frame combination that appears both modern and period-correct. Image size: 12.25″ tall x 17.5″ wide (approximate), framed size 18.25″ tall x 23.5″ wide (approximate). Please contact the gallery@weatherhillfarm for pricing information.

Early Airport Map of Newark Airport by Eric Sloane, N.A.

January 6, 2020 |  by  |  Comments Off on Early Airport Map of Newark Airport by Eric Sloane, N.A.

Exceedingly rare early airport map of Newark Airport, by Eric Sloane, N.A. While it is undated, several clues are visible. One is that there are no hangers on the airport property, only “proposed” hangers. Additionally, “Mayor Ellenstein” (Meyer C. Ellenstein) is listed amongst the prominent names – he was mayor of Newark from 1933-1941. The style of the illustration suggests mid-1930s, given what we know of Eric Sloane’s early illustrations.

This is a print, likely struck in very, very small quantities as this is the only one I have seen in nearly 20 years of collecting, selling, restoring, and authenticating works by Eric Sloane. This map benefits greatly from an original pen and ink drawing by Eric Sloane, as well as his signature, lower right.

Image: Approximately 8.75″ tall x 10.5″ wide

Framed: Approximately 14.75″ tall x 16.75″ wide

Wonderfully framed in a very unique form. Matting is difficult to discern in the photograph – it shows silver swirling reminiscent of cirrus clouds. Under U.V. glass and ready to hang. Please contact the gallery for pricing information.
