    Robert Crumb - "Milking Crane" Sketch Original Art (undated). Here's a typically outrageous Robert Crumb inked doodle, featuring a gang of birds "milking" a young lady, who has been hoisted up by chains and hooks. Bizarre stuff, indeed, from the best-known of all the Underground artists. Crumb drew this freehand in india ink, using a very 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 slight loss of detail around the girl's foot; otherwise, the item has been restored to Excellent condition. The page measures 8 3/8" x 10 7/8", with an image area of approximately 8" x 7.75".
