    Derby Bugs Bug Bunny Painting by Todd Schorr (Warner Brothers, c. 1980s-90s). "It's curtains for you Rocky" says Bugs in the 1949 cartoon short, Racketeer Rabbit. Here is a brilliant Bug Bunny painting by Todd Schorr inspired by the classic Friz Freleng cartoon. Clearly Bugs is doing his best interpretation of Edward G. Robinson as Rico from the film, Little Cesar. The piece was rendered in gouache and airbrush on illustration paper of approximately 10.5" x 17". One of the most prominent members of the "Lowbrow" art movement or pop surrealism, Schorr is known for combining cartoon influenced visuals with a highly polished technical style. Lowbrow art, describes an underground art movement that arose in the Los Angeles area in the late 1960s. It was a populist art movement with cultural roots in underground comix, punk music, and graffiti. The Bugs Bunny painting is enclosed in a glass-fronted frame of 18" x 25" with a matboard aperture of 9.5" x 16". Frame sold as-is. Artwork condition is Fine.
