    Description

    Richard F. Outcault Buster Brown Sunday Comic Strip Original Art (Newspaper Feature Syndicate, c. 1910s). That King of the Scamps, Buster Brown is messing with his grandfather on this Sunday that has some wonderful use of deep blacks and shadows. Great stuff with hardly a word uttered! Rendered in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 18.75" x 23". This is hand-colored with watercolor. It's actually only partially colored, as was the process of the time, but the stark black and white makes the strip work equally well in this format. Signed in the last panel. The lower right corner has a crease in it, and there are pinholes in the margins and image area. Dated only as for "November 15". In Very Good condition.
