    Description

    Woody Kimbrell (attributed, signing as Marge) Little Lulu Comic Illustration Original Art (c. 1950s). Marjorie Henderson Buell's classic comic character Little Lulu began as a single gag panel in the Saturday Evening Post, running from 1935 until 1944. A daily comic strip was started in 1950, with art by Woody Kimbrell and others; it ran until 1969. Little Lulu also appeared in a great number of advertisements and licensed products through those years. Which leads us to this mystery piece. Stylistically, it resembles Woody Kimbrell's daily comic strip, but that was in a multi-panel format. We suspect this piece, which has no copyright info and a pasted-on "Marge" signature print, was either done for a consumer product, or perhaps an unpublished attempt by Kimbrell to continue Buell's single-panel format. The art is in ink and Zipatone shading film on board, with an image size of 7.75" x 10.25". The art is framed with glass for an overall size of 11.5" x 14". Very Good condition.
