1956This is the unique original Gouache painting by Walkden Fisher.
This is an exceptional piece of artwork which has survived the test of time. Painted by the incredible Eagle cut-away artist Walkden Fisher (1913-1979) better known simply as 'Fisher', as he signed his work with an emblem of a fish.
This work was originally painted for Britain's most famous comic: Eagle.
The panel showing the ship was published in the Eagle as part of a centre spread on 7th September 1957 - a copy of these pages are included with the artwork as shown in the additional photograph.
This panel along with the other two, were re-published in the 1971 publication: Look & Learn 1001 Questions and Answers.
It is extremely rare to come across artwork painted for the Eagle Cut Aways as these are cherished by collectors.
These three panels are pasted onto an illustration board measuring 388mm x 360mm.Click for larger image ...
