This Painting is part of the "100 Club" Series by American Artist Clayton Lefevre. Clayton painted 2 original portraits of each celebrity. The Star kept one and personally autographed the other one for him. Until now, they have never been sold – No Copies have ever been made. I have purchased a number of the Clayton Lefevre (American, 20th Century) "100 Club" celebrity portraits.
This Clayton Lefevre (American, 20th Century) is a portrait of Milton Berle. Milton Berle (born Milton Berlinger; July 12, 1908 – March 27, 2002) was an American comedian and actor.
