    Description

    John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Winston Churchill: Wood-Carved Caricatures by Gunnarsson. Three wood carved caricatures, 8"-8.5". The Swedish Gunnarsson family-Nils, Olof, Sven, and Sven's sons Peder and Urban-is well-known for their wood carvers employing the flat-plane style with clean cuts from a single piece of wood. Three wood carved caricatures, most likely by Urban Gunnarsson, of John F. Kennedy (signed Gunnarsson), Robert F. Kennedy (signed Gunnarsson and stamped Made in Sweden), and Winston Churchill (unsigned). These have remarkable resemblances to the real men. RFK figure a bit scuffed. Otherwise, all in very fine condition.

    From the collection of Dr. Dean Rudoy. For more information, please click here.
