    Jack Davis Portrait of Dena Roquemore Original Art (c. 1950s-60s). Davis, a favorite artist with MAD Magazine and Tales from the Crypt, signs himself as "husband of Dena Roquemore" in this lovely watercolor portrait. Roquemore was "the girl he left behind" when Davis moved to New York from their home state of Georgia to seek his fortune as a commercial artist. Only after Davis had established a career in comics, movie posters, and advertising did they marry. Although best known for his exaggerations of human anatomy, Davis excels at the lifelike near-Impressionism of this study, executed entirely in wet-brush broad strokes on a toothy grade of watercolor paper. Image area, 11" x 14.5". Moderate toning and occasional brush-daubs. One horizontal crease at lower edge. Very Good condition.
