Signed by Crumb in ink on front of card. Illustration from the Judith Rothschild Foundation Contemporary Drawings Collection, exhibited at MoMA in 2009.R. Crumb, from humble beginnings as a greeting card artist in Kansas City, became an unlikely sixties icon through his work in Zap Comix. Crumb created Fritz the Cat and Mr. Natural, and his work is now sought after by museums and galleries across the globe. He was the subject of the Terry Zwigoff documentary "Crumb" (1994), and shortly thereafter traded a sketchbook of original drawings for a chateau in France, where he has lived with his family ever since.
