Originals

Gerald Scarfe has been producing drawings and paintings for more than 50 years. His work has been published in magazines and newspapers in the UK and worldwide, and he has designed for theatre, opera, ballet and film, including his iconic work for Disney and Pink Floyd.

His original drawings are far larger than the printed reproductions.  In general, Gerald draws on thick cartridge paper which is approximately 83cm x 60cm (34 x 24 inches), although some drawings are smaller. He mainly works in pen and black ink, adding water colour later.

Gerald Scarfe does not often sell original work, and not many Scarfe originals can be found on the open market. His work can be found in, for instance, the collections at Tate Britain, London, the Smithsonian in New York and the National Portrait Gallery, London. At Sotheby’s pieces have sold for around £10,000.

Buying directly from this site, prices for the larger drawings start at around £5000. If you would like to enquire about buying a Scarfe original please contact us.
