Welcome to my auction. Profile of the artist: Charles Schulz, creator of the most popular cartoon strip ever in my view. His cartoons exhibited a childlike innocence which often hid a darker reality. His bald-headed hero, Charlie Brown, was a lonely and often troubled outsider who has been described as "the patron saint of losers, the clumsy guys." But Schulz's pearls of wisdom struck a chord throughout the world. Peanuts appeared in 2,600 newspapers in 75 countries and was adapted for 40 television shows, 1,000 books and countless items of merchandise including toys, T-shirts and mugs. Charles M Schulz was born in Minneapolis in 1922 and, after serving in the Army in the Second World War, learned cartooning by correspondence course. His first feature, Li'l Folks, was eventually syndicated throughout the United States after being, to Schulz's dislike, renamed Peanuts. Charles Schulz drew much inspiration from his own life. One of his art teachers was called Charlie Brown and Schulz himself pursued a girl without success, echoing Charlie Brown's failure with his own inammorata, the Little Girl with the Red Hair. The raft of characters produced by Charles Schulz brought Peanuts to the very center of American cultural life. Deceptively simple in execution, they nevertheless struck a chord with people throughout the world.
