Charles Schulz (American, 1922-2000). Original four panel "Peanuts" comic strip, the daily strip for Friday, July 22, 1960. Black ink over pencil on drawing board. Pen signed above the first two panels and inscribed "Best Wishes." Dated along the verso.

Charles Schulz grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota, and fostered a love of comics throughout his childhood. He spent his later teen years studying drawing and cartoon work through a correspondence course with Art Instruction Schools. Following deployment in Europe during WWII, Schulz returned to St. Paul and got a job working as an instructor for the Art Instruction Schools. After a short lived comic strip for the St. Paul Pioneer Press, he hit it big with Peanuts in 1950, which was syndicated by United Features. The strip quickly became an enormous success, with legions of fans across the country–and world–falling in love with his quirky cast of characters and charming illustrations.

The present lot typifies the characteristics for which Schulz’s comics were best-loved. It shows the characters’ personalities, always distinctive and lovingly mocked by Schulz. The strength of the character depictions, together with Schulz’s crisp, mobile linework, makes this a wonderful example of a Peanuts daily strip and of Schulz’s facility with character.

Sight; height: 6 1/2 in x width: 28 1/4 in. Framed; height: 10 1/4 in x width: 32 1/4 in.

There are no rips, losses, or restorations. The comics are on two sheets, split down the middle and taped together along the verso. The sheets are toned and there is light acidic mat burn along the edges. They are affixed a matboard along six points: two along the left and right edges and two along the top edge - one for each side. There is soiling throughout, visible in the lot listing. The date along the lower right of the first panel has been covered with white paint. It is dated along the verso - unable to photograph this well due to the hinging, though it is visible upon careful inspection. There is light wear along the edges. The artwork is housed under a double matboard that due to the coloration is likely acidic. Light wear to the frame; framed under glass.
