    Frank Frazetta - Li'l Abner and Daisy Mae Watercolor Original Art (circa 1950s). This watercolor painting depicts the two key characters from the Li'l Abner comic strip. Frank Frazetta worked on this strip from 1952 until 1959, and his portrayals of the Dogpatch gang are very popular with strip art collectors. Although there were about six small watercolors of the Li'l Abner characters done by Frazetta, this is the only one to feature the big guy himself alongside his one true love (outside Mammy Yokum's cooking and "Fearless Fosdick" comic books), Daisy Mae. The colors used in this piece reflect the actual colors used in the Sunday pages. The painting measures approximately 6" x 7.5", and is in Very Good condition. Li'l Abner ran from 1934 until Al Capp's death in 1976. Capp had determined that the strip would not continue after his passing. It was a wonderful, beautifully drawn strip that kept America laughing for many years.
