    Description

    Charles Schulz Peanuts Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 7-21-62 (United Feature Syndicate, 1962). This delightful daily, drawn during a peak period in the Peanuts strip, showcases Charles Schulz's absolute mastery of staging, comedic timing, and reaction takes. Note that Linus sports a pair of glasses. On February 5, 1962, Linus began wearing glasses, but by around August 5th, his ophthalmologist told him that he didn't have to wear them full time, and they were eventually phased out by September. As will be seen in an upcoming Schulz Museum exhibition titled "Hit or Miss -- Experiments in Peanuts" (slated for September 22, 2010 through February 21, 2011), Charles Schulz tested the conventions of his comic world from time to time with new characters such as the outspoken Charlotte Braun, and Faron the cat, and transitory themes such as Linus' glasses or Charlie Brown's "google eyes." This hilarious episode has image area of 27" x 5.5", and it's been matted to an overall size of 31" x 9.25". The art was folded between the second and third panels; otherwise, it is in Very Good condition. The strip is signed in its first panel, "Best wishes -- Charles M. Schulz."
