Art & Beauty Magazine: Drawings by R. Crumb

Captioned, "Beauty combined with innocence and spontaneity are achieved in this study and the one of the next page, as a wholesome young woman of today unabashedly attacks the ever popular hamburger and french fries," with the contrapuntal Edgar Degas quote, "Drawing isn't form; it is a way of seeing form," penned below, this spread from volume 3 of R. Crumb's Art & Beauty Magazine (also available in a signed and numbered limited edition) is reproduced from David Zwirner Books' outstanding new collection of all three issues. "A spot of ketchup at the corner of her mouth in no way mars the exquisite charm of this vibrant, sensuous girl, whose very artlessness only increases her value as an inspiring subject for the pen or brush."
