    JOEL BECK (1944-1999). "Cartoon Cavalcade presents SOVIET SEX SCANDALS!'" (1980)

    Terrific example of Beck's comic book work. He did a series of "Cartoon Cavalcades" pages and half-pages for various underground titles and publishers. This piece reflects  the state of the Soviet Union in 1980 and the fact that dissidents often ended up in psychiatric wards. Beck was a true pioneer whose published comix work pre-dates R. Crumb's ZAP and nearly every other artist in the field.  

    Medium: Pen & Ink on Bristol board.  Dimensions: 15 1/2  x 10 7/8 inches. Signed and dated 1984 (the date he sold and personalized the art), but the actual creation was 1980 (see © date).

    Condition: Some smudges on margins and LR date, some white-out corrections, but overall very good.

    Provenance: From the collection of a friend of Beck's in Southern California. A one-owner original.
