Authentic Signed Illustration by Famous Comic Artist Milt Gross! Possibly Inspirational Piece for "Popeye"- $100K VALUE

$ 49,000.00


Item Description
 This is an original ink illustration of That’s My Pop! by famous comic artist Milt Gross. Gross, an artist employed by the renowned newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst. Gross worked on multiple, very popular comic strips in the 1920’s. His comic, “Then the Fun Began,” was inherited by and very possibly inspired artist E.C. Segar, the creator of “Popeye.”

This is a wonderful, well-preserved piece of Americana. The original pencil sketch of the illustration can still be seen beneath the ink. The ink is varied in tone and depth, authenticating it was done by the artist’s own hand. The bottom right corner clearly features the artist’s signature. There are some slight markings on the illustration, but altogether the piece is in very good condition.

Other original illustrations by Gross are held within the Library of Congress and cannot be reprinted. This is a charming and very rare piece for any comic enthusiast!
