    Description

    Peter Fonda's Picture Drawn for his Father at Age 7. A 5" x 8" original sketch by seven-year-old Peter Fonda, dated January 24, 1948, after his father had returned from his tour of duty in the Pacific and when he was in rehearsals in New York for the play Mr. Roberts. The sketch is a combat scene, showing planes, some falling from the sky. Peter has added a swastika to the sketch with an arrow pointing to one of the planes (although his Dad had fought the Japanese). Perhaps most interestingly, Peter had penciled "Dad" at the bottom of the picture, indicating this was created as a gift for his father. In Very Good condition.
