Please see pictures and inquire if questions. For about 15 years I was heavily into collecting Hannes Bok, as a fellow (sometimes) Minnesotan his work deeply appealed to me. I was never able to afford to collect Maxfield Parrish, but this was a more than worthy substitute. All that stuff has been in storage for most of that time. Check out those other auctions.
Most of the Nigra pieces say print in the sketchbooks, so are published preliminary art! Send in those offers - today is THE DAY!
I will be listing hundreds of auctions in the coming weeks. Be sure to check them out! Thank you Wikipedia for this.
