“About My Collection”
First let me thank you for you’re inquire regarding my collection. Second, let me tell you a little
about what it in tales, as a collector you, better than most will understand and appreciate its
uniqueness. It is the only one of it’s kind in the World. It features “only” original art work with
all pieces signed by the artists that created them. The complete collection consists of over 250
pieces of album cover and music related images. It’s works span 14 years from 1971 to 1985 and
embodies works by some of the top illustrators in the country today.
The two pieces that have been requested the most we’re done by Drew Struzan and Ingrid Haenke
spanning a period from early 1973 to the end of 1975.
In the case of Drew Struzan’s “Welcome To My Nightmare” my collection encompasses not only
that piece but rather a body of his early work, 70 signed original pieces to be exact. These works
of art, when fitted together like the pieces of a puzzle track the evolution of his distinctive style
from its beginnings, as he went from a good figure artist, to what was destined to become the
most in demand and recognized iconic movie poster illustrator of our time.
Drew Struzan has become the #1 most collected artist in the world today. This is greatly due to
the power and Global reach of the motion picture industry, the Internet and the productivity of
Struzan the artist.
“Drew Struzan is the only collectable artist since the second World War.”George Lucas
“Struzan is my favorite movie poster artist ever.” Stephen Speilberg
“Struzan is the greatest poster artist of our time.” The Boston Globe
Like his predecessors and mentors: J.C. Leyendecker, Maxfield Parrish and Norman Rockwell,
Drew has a large body of work to his credit. As for mass popularity, recognition and exposure, at
his age Drew is light years ahead of all of them. Also the Alice Cooper ”Welcome To My Nightmare”
Album Cover was selected as one of the “Top 100 Album Covers Of All Time” by Rolling Stone
Magazine. What makes the Struzan pieces in my collection even more valuable and sought out is:
the fact that in the 3 1/2 years that Drew did album covers, he produced only a hand full (of which
99% were done for PEE) compared to over two decades worth of movie posters, some where north
of 185 posters. These pieces like all famous artists works are generational wealth for investors
especially in today’s unstable finical world.
