Charles Schulz Signed Charlie Brown Drawing.
1954. Large original early drawing of beloved Peanuts character Charlie Brown. Drawn and inscribed by Charles Schulz, "For Marc, Schulz." In near fine condition. Matted and framed, the entire piece measures 20 inches by 16.5 inches. With a letter of provenance signed by the recipient, which reads, "About this Charlie Brown Drawing: In about 1954, I attended kindergarten at Walter Hines Page Elementary School in South Minneapolis. At the time, Charles Schulz's daughter also attended Page Elementary. Charles Schulz appeared at our local school carnival and made drawings for kids for 50 cents each, and my mother purchased this drawing of Charlie Brown for me. Sincerely, Marc Luers." Rare and desirable in such a large format and with noted provenance. Schulz's beloved cartoons have won him the National Cartoonists Society's Humor Comic Strip Award in 1962, the Reuben Award for 1955 and 1964, the Society's Elzie Segar Award in 1980, and the Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award in 1999. Interestingly, his cartoons have also awarded him an abundance of equally colorful honors and recognitions. In 1996, Schulz was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, adjacent to Walt Disney's. And for his interest in sports he was inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame in 1993 and then the Figure Skating Hall of Fame in 2007. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
