    George Herriman - Krazy Kat Hand Colored, Full-Page Saturday Comic Strip Original Art, dated 2-25-22 (King Features Syndicate, 1922). Here is one of only ten full-page Saturday Krazy Kat originals ever done -- and in the eyes of many, the best. Part of a brief experiment by the Hearst newspaper chain to boost the circulation of their Saturday editions, Herriman was assigned a special full-page Krazy Kat strip, slated to appear in a new Saturday color section. Considered by many to be the greatest cartoonist of the twentieth century, George Herriman was admired in his day by such literary luminaries as E. E. Cummings, William Randolph Hearst, and Gilbert Seldes. This superb, hand colored strip features the three major Krazy Kat characters -- Ignatz Mouse, Offisa Bull Pupp, and Krazy Kat herself. Measuring approximately 30" x 38" overall, with an approximate image area of 19" x 26", the piece is framed and in Excellent condition. From the Estate of Bruce Hamilton.
