    Description

    Gladys Parker Mopsy Daily Single-Panel Comic Strip Original Art dated 7-31 (Bell-McClure Syndicate, c. 1960s). As flapper-turned-feminist Parker advanced through her 50s, her alter-ego character, Mopsy, only grew sexier and more controlling. This splendid example shows off the brilliant latter-day Art Deco/Art Nouveau technique, distinguished by some of the finest pen-line work this side of Aubrey Beardsley. The artist and the syndicate neglected to specify the year on this one -- probably 1964-65, given the prevailing style of Parker's late-in-life work. Created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 8.5" x 9.5". Pen-point doodles (testing the nib); and light smudging in margins. Excellent condition.
