    Description

    James Montgomery Flagg's The Art Bug (George Kleine System, 1918). One Sheet (28" X 42").
    James Montgomery Flagg was, at the height of his career, reported to have been the highest paid magazine illustrator in America. What many do not know about the artist is that he also wrote, starred in and/or directed more than a dozen short films between 1914 and 1920. Included in that canon is Art Bug, which also stars Dorothy Wallace, who can be seen drawn to perfection by Flagg himself on this extremely rare stone litho one sheet. Heritage is proud to offer not one, but three posters from Flagg's films in this auction. Only minor signs of wear can be detected, such as a dust shadow in the top border, and light fold wear. Fine/Very Fine.
