    Description

    James Montgomery Flagg "Upon My Sole!" Humorous Self-Portrait Sketch Original Art (c. 1940s). Mr. Flagg appears to have stepped on something sticky in this unusual sketch, done for a personal friend. The caption at the top reads, "Bev - This is a bit of a tweet-tweet to your sponsor!". The art is in graphite and watercolor with red crayon and ink on paper, with an approximate image area of 7" x 10". The paper is tanned from an old framing, with fold creases, small stains, and handling wear; Good condition.
