    Description

    Robert Crumb "Milking Crane" Sketch Original Art (c. 1963). Here's a typically outrageous Robert Crumb doodle, featuring a gang of birds "milking" a young lady, who has been hoisted up by chains and hooks. Bizarre! Crumb drew this freehand in ink, using a fine-point mechanical pen. This sketchbook page has been professionally separated from the reverse side, and mounted seamlessly onto another piece of paper. A small amount of original paper was lost in this process, resulting in a loss of detail around the girl's foot. The page measures approximately 8.25" x 10.75", with an image area of approximately 8" x 7.75". It's been matted and Plexiglas framed to an overall 14" x 14.5", and is in Very Good condition.
