Wolo (1902–1989) Whose real name was Erhardt Anton Wolff Georg Trutzschler Von Falkenstein was an artist, caricaturist, muralist, puppeteer, and children's book author. He emigrated from Europe to the United States after World War I, and after six years doing odd jobs, pursued a career in art over the next sixty years. He began exhibiting his art in Chicago, Los Angeles, and then in San Francisco, where he drew a daily caricature column, "I Saw You", for the San Francisco Chronicle. He painted murals at hospital wards and at restaurants, wrote five children's books, and was a puppeteer for children's parties as well as on television station KPIX 5 in San Francisco. This illustration of Arabella the Giraffe was given to Elisabeth Turner who, during the 1950s and 1960s, operated one of the first neighborhood mobile libraries in the Pasadena area, gaining the nickname of "The Book Roller." A very rare drawing. Please see photos for more details. San Francisco California
