ORIGINAL GRAUMAN’S CHINESE THEATER LOBBY ART OF WARNER OLAND AS CHARLIE CHAN - (c. 1930’s) The art was hand painted by Russell E. Roberts who served an 18-year stint at Pacific Title and Art Studio before heading the Title Art Department at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. This art was commissioned by Grauman’s Chinese Theater for display in their lobby to promote one of Oland’s (16) Charlie Chan films. It is one of a kind, painted in gouache on artist board and measures 20 in. x 40 in. There has been minimal professional restoration done to the piece, which still exhibits some original mounting holes around the perimeter and trace adhesive residue on the lower right. The colors remain vibrant. The piece could easily be restored to its former glory.
