Additional DetailsBefore he became an artist, Lloyd Mitchell was a ranch hand and a bit player in Hollywood Westerns. After the Second World War, Mitchell decided to try his hand at art and studied in Los Angeles. “The fastest brush in the West,” Mitchell’s sense of humor pervades his “fine art cartoons,” especially his “skinny saloons” precariously perched and generally on the verge of collapse as they suffer one predicament after another. This lot is illustrated in The Story of Leanin’ Tree on page 67. A copy of the Leanin’ Tree greeting card that features this art work will accompany this lot.
