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



Image measures 10 1/2″ x 13″ while the mat measures 14 1/2″ x 17 1/2″ on this ORIGINAL 1960’s clown signed “Pen.”  Pen is William Pender Shumaker.  It is a gouache on paper in fine condition. Buyer pays for 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 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.
