    Description

    Robert Crumb - Original Sketch, Texas Guinan (1962). This sketchbook page has on one side Robert Crumb's beautiful rendering of Texas Guinan, the notorious saloon keeper, actress, and entrepreneur from the early 1900s. On the other side is a page of text that appears to be Crumb transcribing a page of Maxon Crumb's weekly journal dated March 4-10, 1962, which amusingly discusses a classroom conflict with one of Maxon's teachers over a yearbook project. It may come as no surprise that as a schoolboy, Maxon had a rebellious and subversive disposition. This page measures 8.5" x 6.5" and is in excellent condition with light oxidation around the edges.
