Unique painting by Antonio Blanco - 1946.  Label verso with typewritten description is faint and partially legible.  It reads: "I LISTENED TO THE...board by...this portrait otherwise called Dynamite Gus is Mr. Blanco's version of the average German rookie[?] thrust into the armed forces thru the use of force-full propaganda.  A Chaplinesque figure who knows no reason for fighting except is order from the Komandent!"

Condition is fair considering the age.  There is small punctured damage in the upper left quadrant, small paint loss in the lower right quadrant, vertical tear to the canvas along the right of the mokey's face that was previously patched. thin lines of vertical abrasions against the canvas surface, needs cleaning.  Our feedback was to leave in the original condition for the buyer to have restored if he/she wanted.  

This was aquired directly by the family of the present owner.
