    Description

    Adam West Painting of "Egghead." The Batman TV show found one of its most fun and flamboyant villains as Horror King Vincent Price made his perfidious debut as "Egghead" on the episode "An Egg Grows in Gotham" (October 19, 1966) - followed the next night by "The Yegg Foes in Gotham." Price, who made several Egghead encore appearances, had the perfect mix of comedy and menace for the high camp series, and even once got into the spirt by starting an on-set egg fight. (Holy Having-Fun-with-your- Role, Batman!). It was only right and proper that Bob Kane included Price's Egghead in the Batman Villain paintings he created, and here is the evil egg man, in all his Humpty Dumpty-style splendor, complete with blue eyes (Price's eyes were really blue), sporting a leer and and holding an egg. Surrounding Egghead are West's no-nonsense-looking Batman, Burt Ward's fist-brandishing Robin - and Yvonne Craig's Batgirl! West has written "Vincent Price 'Egghead'" to the left of Price's image and signed "Adam West" to the right of it. Vivid use of color adds to the picture's vitality and charm. A painting of one of Batman's (and Hollywood's) greatest all-time villains, pictured with Batman, Robin and Batgirl, painted by Adam West - this one has it all! Excellent condition.
