Paul Alexander: Twin-Hulled Dirigible
Original artwork, possibly a concept that was rejected, mid- to late 1970s; similar in feeling to his interior illustration for OUI magazine april 1976 "The Return of Count Von Zeppelin by William Wiser: How will you travel in 2000? Rocket? Saucer? Would you believe the big balloon?" Alexander also noted, on a photo copy of this image, "portfolio piece - unpublished (if you're wondering what it is, it's a twin-hulled dirigible with an airport on top)." This is a Large and impressive work, one of Paul's best in gouache on illustration board perhaps mounted to wood panel, 19” x 34” and framed (no glass) by the artist to 22” x 37” - signed bottom right. A pencil rough on tracing paper is also included in the sale.
