    Description

    Gladys Parker Mopsy Daily Single-Panel Comic Strip Original Art dated 6-8-64 (Bell-McClure Syndicate, 1964). As master cartoonist Parker forged on through her 50s, she retained a 20-something outlook through Mopsy, her near-autobiographical character.
    Most enthusiasts consider the idiom of Good Girl Art to be the domain of manly artists, but Parker broke that norm to fine effect. Mopsy is as smart and sarcastic as she is gaminesque and voluptuous, and she keeps a tight rein on her menfolk. Beautifully drawn, with intense contrast between slender pen-line work and densely blackened areas. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 8.5" x 9.5". Light toning, marginal scribbles and blotting, adhesive stains, and a small blue-tinted stain (lower right). Very Good condition.
