CLARE BRIGGS - INSCRIBED ORIGINAL ART SIGNED - HFSID 15962

 
CLARE BRIGGS
The cartoonist's pencil drawing of a monkey wearing a hat.
Original Art inscribed and signed: "with love/from Clare/Briggs". 3x4 Signed on verso of a card from the restaurant/bar Chez Pirali (Paris). Frayed at top edge, removing what was probably an inscription. Clare Briggs (1875-1930) began as a sketch artist for the Globe Democrat, a Hearst newspaper in St Louis, covering the Spanish-American War in that role. Still working for the Hearst chain for the Chicago Tribune and later the New York Tribune, he created the first continuity comic strip in the US: A. Piker Clark. He later created two more strips: Danny Dreamer and Mr. and Mrs. The latter became a radio series (1929-1931), and Briggs became a national celebrity in demand as a lecturer. He created four comedy shorts for Paramount Pictures in 1919. Heavily soiled. Edges irregularly torn and frayed. Corners lightly worn. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
