A pencil drawing of an elegant interior scene with chairs and credenza, center mural and flanking high panels, 15" by 11 1/2" framed in black metal and matted, signed with initials "JRM" at lower left and dated there 1943. On the reverse a previous owner wrote "JOHN RICHARD MOORE 1925-2009 University High Arts Co Founder Panavision Co.". This early work would date to the artist's teens. Moore, commonly known in later life as Richard Moore, went on to become a co-founder of the Panavision wide screen cinema format, along with Richard Gottschalk. Moore, born in Illinois, was in Los Angeles by the late 1930's. He attended the University of Southern California. In later life he wanted to utilize the advanced filming technologies he had developed, so he returned to the cinematography arts. He worked on such films as Thunderball, Myra Breckinridge, The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean, Annie, Sometimes a Great Notion, and Winning. The drawing is in excellent condition.
