    Description

    Leonard Starr On Stage Daily Comic Strip Consecutive Original Art Group of 3 (Chicago Tribune, 1968). Leonard Starr was an artist's artist, admired by his peers, an influence on a generation of artists, and winner of numerous awards. Starr was a superb draftsman. His layouts and slick line were ideal for the sophisticated look of his art. His ability to render beautiful women was in a class of its own. His fine brushwork and his compelling use of spotted blacks captured subtle facial expressions, and his strong compositions furthered his narrative. His features contain numerous elements of high adventure, mystery, criminal intrigue, and even horror. Starr turned the drama dial up to maximum on these high contrast strips rendered in ink over graphite on Bristol board with image areas of 16.5" x 5", dated 1-1, 2-26, and 3-14-68. In Very Good condition. Slightly toned, with pinholes in the top margins, and pasted-on art corrections.
