Piece shown is an actual one-of-a-kind actual drawing by former long time political cartoonist Hugh Haynie. Cartoon was actually drawn on Nov 3, 1964 which was election night for the presidential race between Lyndon Johnson and Barry Goldwater. The cartoon depicts the two candidates as being the popular "Tortoise & Hare" in a race. The drawing appears to have been done specifically as a gift to a "Ned and Bill" as this is for whom the artist dedicated it to as shown in the photo. The piece has been professionally framed and is behind glass. The frame itself measures 19 inches by 17 inches. Hugh Haynie Signed and dated the drawing as shown.
Acquired from the former estate of a collector and historian. This gentleman's grandfather was a former politician, and at one point served as the Lieutenant Governor for the state of Tennessee during the mid 1960's, which as shown, was when this drawing was done and signed. So this item was acquired and owned by him originally, then given to his grandson.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
