    Description

    Four Mabel Normand Photos and Drawings. This lot presents two exquisite 11" x 14" portraits of Mabel, both remarkable for the sadness in her eyes -- as if pleading with fans who'd forsaken her for their forgiveness and favor. Both bear the stamp en verso of photographer Edwin Bower Hesser. There are also two 11" x 14" reproductions of paintings of Mabel, one of her in tousled hair with a Gibson girl look, the other Mabel in a babushka, as captured by famed artist James Montgomery Flagg. The Flagg reproduction bears the embossed stamp of photographer Albert J. Kopec (his stamp also appears en verso). Superbly evocative pictures make you feel that Mabel's in the room with you, In overall Very Fine condition with very minor surface creases on the photos (and some border staining on picture two), and some border wear on the sketch reproductions.
