    Description

    Gladys Parker Mopsy Daily Comic Strip dated 12-30-63 (Bell, 1963). Fashion designer Parker, at 53 in 1963, persisted in caricaturing herself as the youthful Mopsy -- a character she had invented in 1939 after fellow artist Rube Goldberg remarked that her bobbed hairdo reminded him of a mop. This Christmas-season installment of the single-panel strip catches Mopsy (at right) in a jealous mood. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 8.5" x 10". Light toning. One four-inch X-Acto blade cut (above signature) has been repaired with a strip of production tape on reverse. Very Good condition. From A Collection of Great Cartoonists and Illustrators.
