WhatSellsBest.com is reporting bidding has passed $100,000 for a ’Wizard of Oz’ themed painting by Natalia Babi, with 3-days-to-go in the online auction.
The contemporary painting is based on a China Country character (a young girl made of porcelain china) from L. Frank Baum’s original book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Interestingly, China Country and its characters were excluded from the 1939 film adaptation, The Wizard of Oz, due to time constraints. China Country was reintroduced in the 2013 prequel Oz the Great and Powerful, with the appearance of the young China Girl, who is depicted in the painting.
According to James Massey, publisher of WSB; “Paintings of Oz characters have fetched substantial prices in years past, especially when done by a known artist. In 2011 an Andy Warhol painting of Oz’s Wicked Witch of the West fetched $2.3 million (before the buyers premium).”
