Upon Ziegfeld Girl Avonne Taylor’s death in 1992, the drawings that make up The Taylor-Morse Collection were discovered among personal scrapbooks packed away in a Palm Springs, California storage facility. Taylor’s family uncovered an intimate series of 80 drawings by famed Tijuana Bible and Bazooka Joe cartoonist Wesley Morse done specifically of, and for, Taylor, in 1922-23, each on his personal stationery. These images had remained unseen for 70 years.
