    Walter Lantz - "Woody Woodpecker as the Mona Lisa" Lithograph Original Art (1979). Famed for her mysterious smile, Leonardo DaVinci's "Mona Lisa" served as an inspiration to Walter Lantz for this coy portrait of Woody Woodpecker. Walter Lantz's studio closed in 1972, the last remaining classical cartoon studio. In his retirement, Lantz continued to manage his studio's properties by offering re-releases of cartoons and sales to new venues. He also continued to draw and paint, selling his paintings of Woody Woodpecker. This lithograph, augmented with touches of hand painted color on Woody's head, has an image area of 15" x 19", is framed, and is in Excellent condition.
