    Description

    Sam Berman NBC Parade of Stars Painting Bob Hope Original Art (National Broadcasting Co., 1947). Nobody, but nobody, could out-cartoon Berman when it came to caricaturing the name-brand entertainers. This bright and rambunctious scenario, more than two feet in width, pictures Bob Hope, grinning at the madcap antics of Jerry Colonna -- the resident "crazy man" player on The Pepsodent Radio Show (1938-1953). From an elaborate suite of radio-star paintings, commissioned for a promotional folio for NBC's affiliate stations. Opaque watercolor with airbrush highlights on heavy-duty fibrous illustration board. Image area, 28" x 21". Nail punctures at extreme edges indicate that this piece once was displayed, unframed. Light scuffing in painted area. Very Good condition. From A Collection of Great Cartoonists and Illustrators.
