    Description

    "The Art of T. Hee" Greta Garbo Caricature (Walt Disney, 1935). Greta Garbo appeared in three Disney shorts Mickey's Gala Premiere, Mother Goose Goes Hollywood, and The Autograph Hound and her cartoon likeness was created by King of Golden Age of Hollywood caricatures, the great T. (Thornton) Hee. (1911 - 1988). This drawing of Garbo is an excellent example of his brilliant work. It's a hand-drawn mock-up for a Lucky Strike ad that is signed by the artist in his trademark art-deco style and dated 1935. The green pack Lucky Strike photo is pasted to the original artwork. Truly one of the most interesting pieces by Mr. Hee we have ever offered. Mixed media on 14" x 9.5" board. The piece shows minor handling wear; otherwise condition is Very Good.
