Rendezvous With Destiny, an original Künstler oil painting, and two illustrations from Künstler's private collection are up for auction at Christie's American Art Auction this Thursday, May 21. Künstler has been collecting art from prominent American illustrators for most of his career, and has made the difficult decision to part with two exceptional pieces by Dean Cornwell and Joseph Christian Leyendecker.
Considered one of America’s greatest historical artists, Mort Künstler has become well known for the extraordinary authenticity and drama of his work. Mr. Künstler has created paintings that educate and enrich the viewer’s understanding of some of the most important events in American history.
