    Description

    Rube Goldberg - Inscribed Sketch Original Art (1922). Any Goldberg is a fine Goldberg, but this unique miniature is exceptionally fine. A spontaneous, hilarious gag from the prolific creator of Foolish Questions and Boob McNutt, inventor of the overcomplicated Rube Goldberg Machines, and namesake of the National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Award. With two signatures, yet -- beneath the inscription, and beneath the art itself. Loosely placed in a conventional photo frame. Ink on bond paper. Image area, 7" x 5". Excellent condition.
