1971This is the unique original Gouache painting by Jesus Blasco.
Wagon Westward was a six page illustrated story that was the last feature in the 1972 Treasure Annual.
It tells the story of the Burtons, a pioneer family who in 1846 set out from Kansas as part of a wagon train travelling to California. Tension mounts as the family are left behind when a wheel breaks and they must face the hazardous conditions on their own.
Wonderful two-tone artwork from Jesus Blasco. Some panels have traces of glue residue and this is reflected in the low price. As the panels have been remounted the art was probably used in an earlier publication.
