A "Fettuccine" hand-painted concept illustration by Jack Johnson from Ivan Reitman's supernatural comedy sequel Ghostbusters II. After they defeated Viggo the Carpathian, a medieval tyrant whose spirit existed within a portrait, the original team of paranormal investigators (Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis) noticed that his image had been replaced with a renaissance-style portrait of themselves surrounding baby Oscar (William T. Deutschendorf and Hank J. Deutschendorf II).
This Raphaelite-style portrait "by the famous artist Fettuccine," is rendered in mixed media and affixed with a white poster board border and backing with a wire hanger. It was done as a "final" painting for the full-size portrait by production illustrator Jack Johnson, who has signed the painting on the bottom left corner. The prop seen in the film was based on this Johnson illustration but does not match it exactly. It exhibits signs of wear from age and use, but remains in good overall condition with its vibrant coloration still intact. Dimensions: 26.5" x 20.5" x .5" (67.5 cm x 52 cm x 1.25 cm)
Estimate: $12,000 - 16,000
