    Kelly Freas MAD #44 Front and Back Cover Paintings Original Art Group of 2 (EC, 1959). The front cover shows Alfred E. Neuman looking in, while the back cover shows it from his point of view... featuring Moxie Cowznofsky! (So named in the letters page of issue #48). The matching set of paintings are still in their original frames from when they hung in the MAD Offices. Crafted in oil and mixed media, they each have a matted image area of 16" x 22". Moxie's painting was produced in sections around the window frame design. There is spray-on flocking. Some of the paint on the right has chipped off on this painting. They are glass front framed to 19.5" x 25.5" (with a scratch at the top of Moxie's frame). Alfred is in Excellent condition, and Moxie is in Very Good condition.
