    Description

    Robert Crumb - Original Illustration "Cream Cheese Smear" (1993). In 1993, gallery owner Alex Acevedo mounted a show of Robert Crumb artwork, and asked the artist to write "something" for the exhibition. Crumb's response was this couple of paragraphs and accompanying sketch ("Stage Door Deli, Lexington Ave., next to the Barbizon Hotel."), all of which appear to have been rendered on a paper placemat! An exceptional bit of Crumb history. Roughly 9.5" x 13.5".
