    Description

    Edward D. Kuekes Cleveland Editorial Comic Strip Original Art Group of 7 (Cleveland Plain Dealer, 1951-1966). Kuekes' recurring cartoon character, Moses Cleaveland (aka Cleveland), figures prominently in these varied, extra-large commentaries on the state of politics and the economy of the city of Cleveland. (Moses is a caricature of the city's 18th-century founder.) These extra-large compositions cover more than a decade of progress and setbacks, and all benefit from Kuekes' brisk brush-work and emphatic shading.
    Ink over graphite on Coquille board, with crayon. General image area, 10" x 15". Faint toning. Excellent condition. From a Collection of Great Cartoonists and Illustrators.
