    Description

    George McManus Bringing Up Father Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated (King Features Syndicate, 1919). McManus brought celebrity and longevity to the cartooning profession with Bringing Up Father, the long-running tale of a new-rich laboring man and his social-climbing wife. Jiggs remains a hard-working bumbler at heart, and here he undertakes to show his wife's hired plumber how a job should be done. Disaster results, but Jiggs snaps back with a fine punch-line. This early example (six years after the launch) finds Jiggs looking altogether more apelike than he would appear in the years to come. The piece is undated as to month and day. Ink over graphite with blue-pencil shading on Bristol board. Image area, 18" x 6.25", matted to 23" x 11". Excellent condition.
