    Description

    The Art of T. Hee Marx Brothers Caricatures (Walt Disney, c. 1930s/'40s). T. (Thornton) Hee (1911 - 1988) was an animator, director, and character designer at Disney studios as well as Warner Brothers, Disney, UPA, and even taught for years at Chouinard Art College. He is best known for his caricatures of Golden Age of Hollywood Stars. This is an original T. Hee drawing of three Marx Brothers, Groucho, Chico and Harpo. They're drawn in graphite on a 10" x 8" sheet of paper. Possibly done for an ad, the drawing shows Groucho reading Life Begins at 40. Stunning work from the hand of the great T. Hee. Minor handling and edge wear. Condition is Very Good.
