    FRANK STACK. "Ronald Reagan's History Class" (1984).

    Trenchant political satire created by Stack during the final year of Ronald Reagan's first term as president. The free world's leader conducts a quick history and civics lesson, dressed in cowboy regalia. Stack's reluctant prediction in the very last panel caption came true, as Reagan was re-elected to another four years in office. Though drawn in this horizontal format, it was reformatted and run as a standard size page as the inside back cover of Feelgood Funnies #2 (Rip Off Press). Signed and dated by Stack in opening panel.

    Provenance: This original art is warranted to be from the artist's personal collection (Stack is exclusively represented by this agency). Art comes with a letter of authenticity upon request. See "bio" section for information on Frank Stack (a.k.a. Foolbert Sturgeon), one of the earliest and most important of the underground cartoonists.

    Size/medium/condition/price: Drawn in pen and ink on a lightweight illustration paper measuring 14 inches wide by 10 inches high. Artist's pencil notations and a spelling correction in margin outside inked and matted area. One inch scissor cut in lower left, outside image/matted area. Top of art is hinge-mounted with archival tape to professionally cut mat measuring 20 inches wide x 16 inches high. Slight scuffing on upper right of mat but original art itself is excellent other than noted.
