    Robert Crumb - Original Pin Up Art for Art & Beauty, "The Three Graces" (Fantagraphics, 1995). Bob really loves the babes! With that somewhat sexist blanket statement, let us further enlighten you on the way Mr. Crumb's mind works. You see, his real love is drawing. Making that Rapidograph mechanical pen move across the page. He just can't stop! "If I'm not drawing, I'm nothing", Crumb has been quoted as saying. So he draws anything and everything, but one subject always stands out -- the female form. Here, he takes a classic painting by French artist Jean-Baptist Regnault, and renders his own version of the three lovely ladies meant to represent Beauty, Joy, and Charm. This piece was published in Crumb's Art & Beauty magazine; the original caption read "warmth of softly molded contours is one of the charms of this exquisite classic composition of nude figures." Plus, they had some Big Behinds, always a plus for Robert Crumb! This fine example of Crumb linework measures 10" x 13", and has been matted to an area of 13.5" x 16.5"; it is in excellent condition.
