(Esquire, c.1970) An original painting depicting the American folk singers Tom and Dick Smothers, best known by their performing name the "Smothers Brothers." Despite their clean cut look and act, their variety show, The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, became quite controversial as the brothers often spoke out against the Vietnam War, resulting in the loss of their show in 1969. This artwork was created by Green for an article in Esquire magazine which depicts the clean cut brothers, and was paired next to an additional illustration by Green of the brothers depicted as hippies. Accomplished in oils on sturdy board, the painting measures 24"x18" and is in very good condition with some paint wear and small chips to the edges of the board. There are a few small pieces of tape around the edges, and Green has signed the bottom-right corner.
