    Description

    Ogden Whitney - Original Art for Herbie House Ad (ACG, 1964). Herbie Popnecker, the lovable Fat Fury battled crime with his trusty lollipop for several years in the mid-1960s. Beloved and revered as one of the greatest creations of the legendary Ogden Whitney, Herbie art rarely surfaces for sale. This is an exceptional piece, used as a second house ad for Herbie's magnificent magazine, and features the clean, bold linework that Whitney was famous for. The piece is exceptionally clean and nice, measuring approximately 14.25" x 20", and has a minimal of editorial notations around the outer border, none of which affect the art. There is some slight coffee-colored staining at the right edge, but this is minimal and detracts not at all from this wonderful, whimsical piece of 1960s fun.
