    Description

    Winsor McCay The Gambler Cartoon Original Art (c. 1920s). Titled The Gambler, this wonderful and large drawing has all of the hallmarks of a Winsor McCay piece, with fantastic crosshatching, dynamic and dark linework around the figures in the car, the feeling of motion from the train, the detailed background, and an absurd concept! With an image area of 10.5" x 13.25", Plexiglas front framed to 20.25" x 23.75", the ink on Bristol board piece was signed in the lower right. There is some soiling, toning to the board, and pin-holes around the extreme edges. Lightly creased and frayed at the extreme corners; otherwise, visually in Very Good condition. Not examined outside of frame.
