Original drawing by playwright Tom Stoppard. “I can’t draw. Really. Look: My Hous, My Dogg (crossed out and replaced with ‘Hors’) Love, Tom.” The drawing corresponds to one of Stoppard’s later plays, The Real Thing, first performed in 1982. Known for his use of playful language in addressing philosophical concepts, Stoppard’s later works sought greater emotional and interpersonal depths, as is also apparent in this lighthearted and intentionally naive portrayal of a scene typical of children’s art. Rare and desirable with an original drawing. The drawing measures 8.5 inches by 8 inches. Matted and framed. The entire piece measures 14 inches by 14 inches.
