    Description

    Robert Crumb "Concentration Camp/Mabel" Double-sided Sketchbook Page Original Art (c. 1961). Here's a rarely seen penciled page from one of young Robert Crumb's many sketchbooks, this one featuring a grim concentration camp scene along with detailed studies of an old man in period clothing, and Mabel, the star of many strips drawn in tandem with older brother Charles. In fact, we believe the small face of wide-eyed Jim next to Mabel may in fact have been drawn by Charles. The 5" x 8" image-size page has been matted and framed to an overall 8.75" x 11.75", and is framed so that the reverse side of the page can also be seen. There are more period portraits on the reverse, including a fat Fritz, as well as one facial profile drawn in red ink. The art is in Very Good condition.
