Painting of A Ghost.
This is an original painting on illustration board. We believe this to be from the WWII era, most likely intended for use by the Navy. The piece measures 10.5" x 8.5". As seen in the image, the board has a tinge of color change with some scattered stains along the bottom half of the piece and there are a few stain spots throughout. There is evidence of tape residue 0.5" thick with surface paper loss 3" long along the upper edge and slight tape residue at bottom edge. There appears to be a pin hole in the middle of the piece but does not pierce through the piece. The corners exhibit signs of wear and there is a 0.5" fold across the lower left corner. There are some imprints to the paper and black markings by the lower right corner. There are creases 1" and 1.5" long above the lower left corner and some minuscule specs of white paper residue in the character. As visible in the image, there is a faint green smudge halfway across and above the lower edge.
