Kelly Freas Canvas Confidential Vincent Van Gogh "Starry Night" Original Art (Dial Press, 1963). Canvas Confidential was a book put together by Sy Reit and Frank Jacobs, with Kelly Freas illustrations, that lampooned famous paintings. Here's Freas' take on Vincent Van Gogh's immortal classic, "Starry Night," that reveals the night swirls to be snow -- with Santa Claus and his sleigh cruising through the sky! This great presentation features color copies of the book's cover and a black & white print of the original painting, plus the Freas version, painted in ink with grey and white paint on illustration board, plus his preliminary penciled version on tracing paper. The painting has an image area of 9" x 7.25"; the entire presentation on Foamcore board measures 24.5" x 19.5". In Excellent condition. From the MAD Collection.
