William Pender Shumaker, Clown Arty, Donald Art Co. Collection



This gouache on paper was done in the 1960’s and is signed “Pen” for William Pender Shumaker.

The full sheet measures 9″ x 12″ while the image (showing the cut lines) is 7 1/4″ x 10″.  Condition is fine. Buyer pays for packing and shipping.

Thus far we are hard pressed to find another original by Pen on line so we can’t do a comparable for the price! There are plenty of reproductions of these delightful clown paintings.

Shumaker was a Golden Era illustrator who worked on Pep comics in the 1940’s. Pep later became Archie Comics. He was right handed but had his right arm amputated as a child and painted with his left hand.
