    Description

    Mad Hatter Painting by Adam West. David Wayne (1914-1995) was primarily a Broadway star, a two-time Tony Award winner who probably reached his largest audience as The Mad Hatter, aka Jervis Tetch. Wayne's Mad Hatter made four appearances on the Batman TV series during the first two seasons (who can forget "The Contaminated Cow" episode in Season Two?), and Adam West paid him tribute in this bizarre painting, which makes the Mad Hatter considerably more comic book-nightmarish than he was on the show. While Wayne sported a top hat and handlebar mustache, West's Mad Hatter wears a crown, is clean shaven, and has a pointed nose, evil orange, black, and red eyes and a slack mouth -- Holy Artistic License, Batman! A bonus comes in the painting via the image of Batman and Robin, reflected in the Hatter's hat/crown. The colors are bright and riotous and West has written both "The Mad Hatter" in the lower left and signed "Adam West" in the lower right. Excellent condition. Accompanied by James Spence Authentication auction LOA.
