Funny Comedienne Phyllis Diller Original Oil Painting on Canvas with 2 Titles

About

Humorous original oil on canvas with black ink, painting by deceased American comedienne, Phyllis Diller (1917-2012), which she titled, “Two Idiots On A Bicycle Pulling A Large Animal” written on the wood canvas stretcher, and “Subservient Dog Driving 2 White Animals In A Cart”, written on the back of the canvas. When she initially wrote the word, "Subservient", she misspelled it, so she just crossed it out and wrote it correctly above the crossout. The painting has been beautifully framed, in a very transitional style black and mottled gold frame with a solid black liner accented with a decorative mottled gold fillet. A new paper dust jacket now covers the titles in the back. Please refer to the photos taken before the painting was framed. The dust jacket paper is easily removed to expose the titles. Signed and dated, “Phyllis Diller ‘87” in the lower right corner. Visible image measures approximately 27.75" wide x 21.5" high”. Frame measures approximately 35.25” wide x 29.5” high x 1.25" deep”. Weighs approximately 6 pounds. Phyllis Diller was an American actress and stand-up comedienne, best known for her eccentric stage persona, her self-deprecating humor, her wild hair and clothes, and her cackling laugh. She was a groundbreaking stand-up comic who was one of the first female comics to become a household name in the U.S. She paved the way for Ellen DeGeneres, Joan Rivers and Roseanne Barr, among others, who credit her influence. She worked in acrylics, watercolors, and oils throughout the 1970s and 1980s and filled her Brentwood, California home with her portraits and still lifes. In 2003, at age 86, she held the first of several "art parties," selling her artwork along with her stage clothes and costume jewelry. Her works have sold in auction for over $4,000.00.
