    ORIGINAL FRANK LOESSER ARTWORK..

    Please note: Autographs from the Leonard Finger collection have not been autenticated by Spence/Grad but we believe these autographs to be as stated.

    Includes: 11 x 8 3/4" ink sketch on yellow lined paper of trumpet, book, and peaches on a chess board signed "Frank Loesser drew This and fuck you." Another work by the noted lyricist and composer ("Guys and Dolls") is an 11 x 10" watercolor of three figures on the stairway of a Greek temple, inscribed in pencil on the bottom "Leonard’s longest run–inspired by a Maxfield Parrish-type Rosebud. F. Loesser." (the show referred to was Leonard Sillman’s "New Faces"). A third 8 x 10" portrait sketch in colored pencil is inscribed "Sillman by Loesser". These were given by Loesser to Sillman and bought from his estate.
