Virgil Franklin Partch, better known as VIP, has a unique slant to his cartoons and a style that's instantly recognizable. The quality of the art is very good as you see reality mixed with a lot of fun - this is a great example of his work.
The art's size is, full size 11" wide X 8 1/2" tall (approx), on thin art paper. This is in great condition, -- we have shelf wear and age with all the corners bent and the sides of the spine have large pieces missing on the back only -- it is exactly as shown --- it will display quite beautifully. This is guaranteed to be as stated in this listing and shown in the scan.
Please add me to your favorites list. As there is a lot more coming.
