Chuck Jones (1954)
Painting of A Baby.
This wonderful piece comes out of a close personal friend of Chuck's. Chuck painted this piece for the family years back and they used it throughout the years as a fun holiday and personal announcement board. It's fascinating to see those great Chuck Jones animation style traits come through in this piece, particularly notable in the face, eyes, hair and skin tones of the baby. The piece is quite striking at 36" x 39". We love the charming story behind this piece and believe it would make a great addition to any Chuck Jones Collector's portfolio. The dedication is written in green marker at the bottom right and faintly reads: "For Lucille- From her great admirer with love (lots) from Chuck Jones 1954". This piece does apply for free designer's discretion molding or the equivalent. As the family who owned this piece used it as a fun board, there are several areas that have tiny pin holes such as the back, shoulders, and hand. Other pin hole marks are scattered around the baby as well.
