    Description

    Virgil Ross - Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam Illustration (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). A scene from the 1953 Merrie Melodies short Hare Trimmed served as inspiration for this lively sketch by Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996). The award-winning Mr. Ross was a long-time animator for Warners who worked in the Tex Avery, Bob Clampett, and Friz Freleng units; he was known for his action and dance sequences, as well as his facial expressions. Three of the cartoons he worked on won Oscars -- Tweety Pie (1947), Birds Anonymous (1957), and Knighty Knight Bugs (1958). A series of Limited Edition "Masters Collection" cels by Mr. Ross were big sellers. This piece was drawn by Virgil Ross on a sheet of 12 field animation paper, with image sizes of 8" and 6". Fine condition. Signed in the lower right.
