    Benson - Animation Style Nude Female Illustration Original Art (c. 1940s). A real cutie, signed with a personal message to cartoonist Jack Kent: "Wishing you lots of Pretty things, Jack - Benson" The art style suggests a Betty Boop-ish animation style; however, the art media suggests a cartoon illustrator connection. Rendered in black, grey, and red ink on on 12.25" x 14.75" illustration board. The board is toned, with pinholes in the corners, and some minor staining in the top margin above the 7" x 9" image area. There is a very minor stain just above the inscription. In Very Good condition. From the Jack Kent Collection.
