    Description

    Robert Crumb Weirdo n°15 Parodie de Publicité (Last Gasp, 1985). Cette œuvre est le projet d'édition le plus ambitieux de Crumb, issu du magazine collectif Weirdo et développée dans les années 1980-90. En 2018, cette réalisation a refait surface, intéressant un public plus large, grâce à l'ouvrage The Book of Weirdo signé par l'historien Jon B. Cooke. Ce magnifique dessin à l'encre et au lavis est l'hommage de Crumb aux parodies publicitaires des années 50 et 60 publiée dans MAD Magazine. Ce type d'images devenues subliminales illustre la tendance du monde publicitaire à transformer les émotions en images commerciales. Encre et lavis d'encre de Chine sur un carton Bristol. Zone d'image, 41 x 51 cm. Excellent état.

    Robert Crumb Weirdo #15 Advertising Parody Original Art (Last Gasp, 1985). Crumb's most ambitious publishing project, the multi-artist Weirdo series of the 1980s-90s, is back in the popular consciousness in 2018 via historian Jon B. Cooke's comprehensive The Book of Weirdo. This splendid ink-and-wash drawing is Crumb's homage to those great old MAD Magazine advertising parodies of the 1950s and '60s. The subliminal images in particular satirize the advertising industry's tendency to sneak hidden emotional triggers into commercial images. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 16" x 20". Excellent condition.

    Estimate $20,000-$25,000
