    Description

    Otto Messmer Felix the Cat Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 11-10-35 (King Features Syndicate, 1935). Felix and his "sound silencer" machine land him a free meal from a grateful husband who stayed out too late, and needs to slip past his waiting wife who has dozed off after locking him out, rolling pin in hand. Got all that? Suffice to say it's all surreal fun as only the great Otto Messmer could deliver, in his unmistakable art style that has influenced many artists through the years. There's nothing quite like a prime 1930s Felix Sunday, and this is one of Messmer's best. It's in ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image size of 20.5" x 16.25". Very Good condition.
