"Break That Bottleneck: Highway Construction": ORIGINAL SIGNED CARTOON
click image to zoom

The drawing in heavy pencil and chalk is of a bulldozer titled "Highway Construction" ramming into and breaking the neck of a bottle containing a number of cars and trucks packed into it. The image, SIGNED by Goldberg, is 11" x 12" on a 14-1/2" x 18-1/2" sheet. It more than likely was done for a newspaper as it has reproduction directions in the margin beneath the image, and while it is not dated the subject matter and style of cars indicates it was accomplished sometime during the 1950s. An uncommon opportunity to acquire an original piece of art from the creator of the famous Goldberg contraptions. Near Fine (Item ID: 008123)
