    UPA Studios Concept Painting, Bob "Yoshi" Inman, (UPA, c. 1960s) Beautiful concept painting by UPA background artist and color-stylist, Bob "Yoshi" Inman. Inman's style varied according to assignment and by time-period, but his paintings always had a distinctive modernist look to them. Here is a vibrantly-colored piece, in a style reminiscent of Raoul Dufy. A golden afternoon in a rural setting, we see a small Mediterranean village - complete with whitewashed buildings and Spanish-tiled roofs - seen from a hilltop. Light, loose brushstrokes add a whimsical, spontaneous feel to this cheery piece. Gouache/ tempera on illustration board. Reverse reads "Adventures of Mr Magoo" in graphite. Piece measures 13" x 10". In Fine condition.
