This is a handmade signed limited edition screenprint.
This is a drawing by the original Betty Boop draftsman, Max Fleischer. He submitted them to the US patent office in 1931 as a design for a doll or similar.
A version of a Jazz age flapper, Betty Boop combined the childish with the sophisticated she has a large round baby face with big eyes and a nose like a button.
I've given her a red dress the colour of glamour. Her sexiness was toned down in the mid-1930s as a result of the notorious American Hays Code to appear more demure, she became one of the best-known and popular cartoon characters in the world.
This is a handmade original screenprint: a work of art printed by hand, from a plate, block, stone, or stencil (which is the case here - screenprints are made using screen stencils) that has been created by the artist for the purpose of producing the image.
Signed and numbered out of 200 in pencil by the printer, John Patrick Reynolds.
