Princess Marigold - Painting Magic Ep. 1 (Original)

Ref: BellavitisPM01 (Click for LARGE picture)

Artist: Giorgio Bellavitis (biography)
Medium: Pen & Ink & Watercolour on Card
Size: 13" x 17" (340mm x 420mm)
Date: 1966

This is the original Pen & Ink & Watercolour by Giorgio Bellavitis.

The incredibly popular Princess Marigold stories appeared in Treasure magazine. During the first episodes, King Florian is searching for a suitable husband for his daughter, Princess Marigold. When Princess Marigold meets Wizard Weezle, a misunderstanding ensues which degenerates into Wizard Weezle becoming a fierce enemy of the Princess, using dastardly magic in all manner of improbable ways in order to fulfil his cunning schemes.

This is the first page of 'Painting Magic', in which Wizard Weezle who has been banished from King Florian's castle for casting a shrinking spell, finds himself transforming the large cook Mr. Munch, into a long thin parcel addressed to Prince Rupert.

Beautifully painted by Bellavitis (the first of three artists to work on the strip- The subsequent artists being Louis Bermejo and Nadir Quinto), this page has the five original hand painted panels pasted down as they appeared in Treasure magazine No 163.

Please note, this page shows foxing over the white area, however foxing is only visible on the first of the panels, and is slight. The four other panels are foxing free.
