    Description

    Robert Crumb Art & Beauty #1 Illustration Original Art (Kitchen Sink, 1995). Robert Crumb described his drawings for Art & Beauty Magazine as "heroic" and at the same time, "erotic in their wholesomeness," and that they were also a "positive phenomenon in the 'post-modern' age." He dedicated this book to portraits of athletic female figures in action, interpreting them in his unique style. Sitting haughtily on a exercise cycle, Crumb presents this well-toned lass with a rare tenderness and thoughtfulness; the image is based on a photo of model Rachel McLish. The art has an image area of 8.5" x 11.75" and is in Excellent condition.
