Great full-color cartoon original art from the 1940s by Jay Irving, best-known for his POTTSY comic strip! The image has a nervous fireman gripping a pole with a heavyset fireman telling him “No, Finnegan….For Up, We Got Stairs”. A happy dog with a bandaged tail watches nearby.
Artwork is framed. Signed “Jay Irving” on the upper right of art. Caption is hand lettered on to the mat. Art is bright and Excellent. Wood frame has archival mat containing art with 14-1/4 x 15-1/4” image area.
Jay Irving (1900-1970) worked at “Collier’s” weekly magazine 1932-1945 creating “Collier’s Cops”, and is best known for the “Pottsy“ comic strip which appeared 1955-1970. He was a founding member of the NCS, and his son is noted writer Clifford Irving. Wonderful example, ready for display.
