    Description

    Winsor McCay A Tale of the Jungle Imps Original de la planche du dimanche 22 février 1903 (Cincinnati Enquirer, 1903). La sixième planche dans cette série ! Cette bande précède de deux ans celle plus célèbre de McCay, Little Nemo in Slumberland. Elle précède également d'un an ses autres séries connues, Le petit Sammy éternue et Cauchemars de l'amateur de fondue au Chester. Le thème récurrent de cette série de textes illustrés est l'origine de certains animaux. Cet épisode est intitulé « Comment le pélican a eu sa poche ». McCay a également été un précurseur de l'animation avec sa série révolutionnaire Gertie le dinosaure en 1914. Cette planche du dimanche a été réalisée au crayon, à l'encre et à l'aquarelle sur papier bristol de 48,5 x 58,5 cm. Le texte a été typographié et collé. Le papier présente des traces de manipulation, et un coin manquant a été restauré. Il y a une légère pliure en haut à droite, et les bords sont un peu usés. La planche a été collée à une autre feuille de mêmes dimensions. Signé en bas à droite. Assez bon état.
    Winsor McCay A Tale of the Jungle Imps Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 2-22-03 (Cincinnati Enquirer, 1903). Only the sixth Sunday in this series! The strip pre-dated Winsor McCay's more well-known Little Nemo in Slumberland for a full two years. In fact, it pre-dates his other famous strips of Little Sammy Sneeze and Dream of the Rarebit Fiend by a year as well. This series of text stories with illustrations had a recurring theme of explaining how certain animals came to be. This episode is titled "How the Pelican Got His Pouch". McCay would also be the father of animation with his ground-breaking animated Gertie the Dinosaur cartoon in 1914. This Sunday was created in ink and watercolor over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 19" x 23". The text is printed typeset paste-up. The toned board has handling wear, and restoration work to fill a missing marginal corner. There is a minor crease on the upper right, and some edge wear all the way around. It has been affixed to a same-sized sheet of illustration board. Signed in the lower right. In Very Good condition.
