This gouache on paper was done in the 1960’s and is signed “Pen” for William Pender Shumaker.
The full sheet measures 9″ x 12″ while the image (showing the cut lines) is 7 1/4″ x 10″. Condition is fine. Buyer pays for shipping.
Thus far we are hard pressed to find another original by Pen on line so we can’t do a comparable for the price! There are plenty of reproductions of these delightful clown paintings.
Shumaker was a Golden Era illustrator who worked on Pep comics in the 1940’s. Pep later became Archie Comics. He was right handed but had his right arm amputated as a child and painted with his left hand.
