Kelly Freas Canvas Confidential Paul Cézanne "Card Players" Original Art (Dial Press, 1963). Canvas Confidential was a very funny book written by MAD-scribes Sy Reit and Frank Jacobs, with illustrations by Kelly Freas, that took a look at famous pieces of art as seen from the "other side." We can now see that the men originally seen in a famous Paul Cézanne painting were in reality a bunch of cheats! The painting is in grey acrylics with an image area of 8.5" x 7"; the entire presentation, including the penciled preliminary on tracing paper, plus copies of the original painting and book cover, all on Foamcore board, measures 24.5" x 19.5". In Excellent condition. From the MAD Collection.
