Description

    GEORGE HERRIMAN (American, 1880-1944)
    Three consecutive Krazy Kat daily comic strips from the "Tiger Tea" sequence, July 9-11, 1936
    Pen and ink on board
    4.75 x 20.5 in.
    Not signed

    From the Jerry Weist Collection.

    George Herriman's masterpiece Krazy Kat is universally acclaimed as one of the greatest comic strips of all time-and many collectors and historians consider the extended "Tiger Tea" storyline to be the finest moment in the strip's daily continuity. Single examples from the story are scarce in the marketplace, so a three-daily sequence represents a very special opportunity.


    Condition Report*:

    Scattered areas of very light surface grime; four linear accretions of faint blue pencil/ink on the upper edge and two on the second strip; otherwise visually in very good condition. Not exmained outside of frame. Framed under plexi-glass to an overall size of 21 x 25.25
