    Description

    Granville Bruce Frontier Scouts Original Art (1932). Nebraska-born and long associated with the scenic and architectural artistry of Texas, Bruce devotes this immense piece to the heroic pairing of a Native American tribesman and a buckskinned settler. Inscribed to schoolboy cartoonist Jack Kent, likely during Bruce's term of residence in San Antonio, Kent's hometown. Kent would grow up to become a working cartoonist, acclaimed for a strip called King Aroo. The dating of this piece stems from a pencilled notation on the reverse. Layered graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 20" x 20". Deep age-toning, with marginal moisture staining. Very Good condition.
