    Description

    Jack Davis Cowboy Original Art (c. 1950s-60s). Much of Davis' best (and funniest) art went unseen by the public -- a result of his habit of providing friends and fans with original drawings. This easygoing horse-and-rider composition represents that generous art-for-art's-sake sideline. The spontaneity is such that the signature and inscription (lower right) appear in the same manner of brush-stroke that Davis used to outline the figures and fill in the mane and the tail. Although Davis' basic style remained consistent throughout his career, this piece is most stylistically akin to his many record-album covers of the late 1950s/early 1960s and his solo comic-book project of 1961, Yak Yak. Ink and watercolors over on Bristol board. Image area, 9" x 12", attached to a backing sheet of watercolor stock. Moderate toning. Very Good condition.
