Very detailed, complex, good-sized (21" by 15 3/4", 29" by 23 1/4" as framed) ink and watercolor whimsical drawing of a cartoonish scene including Victorian type house, car, old lady pushing shopping cart, cat, bird, dog, -----well, let's say it's hard to describe....just see the images yourself! At first glance this looks like a print or reproduction, but it is absolutely ORIGINAL ART. Carl Muecke is a veteran of political satire expressed in art, going back to his days at UC Berkeley. More recent mentions online indicate he is closely associated with Eureka, in far Northern California. Muecke's more recent art is very colorful and bold and executed in three dimensions, taking from his days spent growing up in Arizona, with its Mexican folk art influences. This piece, dated 1981 above the door (doors are a prominent feature in his works, and they have symbolic meanings) and by the artist's signature at lower right, is in an earlier style. It is in excellent condition. Framed behind thin Plexi for safe and inexpensive shipping. Take the time to study the drawing and ponder its many, many buried social messages.
