    Description

    George "Lichty" Lichtenstein Grin and Bear It Daily Comic Strip Original Art Group of 4 (Publishers-Hall Syndicate, 1967). These gems from a fine, often-imitated cartoonist typify the jovial sarcasm that had made Lichty a popular favorite since the 1920s. The masterstroke is a painstakingly composed compositional style that has the outward appearance of a loose-jointed, almost sketchy approach. The pieces fall very close together in time: 12-21-67, 12-22-67, 12-23-67, and 12-27-67. Ink over graphite with black crayon on Coquille board, with painted white retouching. Image area, 8" x 10.5". Faint toning and marginal adhesive residue. Some captions/headers have loosened. Very Good condition.
