    Description

    John Rose (attributed) The Bodacious Cast of Barney Google an' Snuffy Smith Original Art Illustration (c. 2000s). Since inheriting the classic King Features strip in 2001, Rose has taken pains to maintain and advance the legacies of creator Billy DeBeck and longtime author-artist Fred Lasswell. This panoramic spread pictures every principal character, from Snuffy and Loweezy Smith (center) to their backwoods friends and kinfolks. Barney Google (once the star player) appears toward the right. Rose channels well the overriding style of Lasswell, down to the finer detail of numerous protruding tongues, indicating amusement. Ink and wax-pencil coloring over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 21" x 9", matted to 25" x 13.5". Light smudging on matte. Excellent condition. From A Collection of Great Cartoonists and Illustrators.
