Tarzan painting by Doug Teeples
Subject: Re: Tarzan oil painting
I recently purchased this original oil painting at a second hand store and was wondering if you could give me any information on it. If you may know the title or if possible you may know the artist. I am including the pictures as attachments with this e-mail. As you can see it was painted in 1985 and is of Tarzan standing over a just killed golden lion. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I used to live in Tarzana CA on Conchita Way, many years ago as a Mormon missionary then returned to start my acting career in 1982. Hopefully we can figure out who I can attribute this painting to. In your opinion, would you say this is a good artist or one who has a great talent? Just wondering since I am just now getting into collecting oil paintings.
Sincerely, Jon Platten ~ Layton, UT

I like his work. . . good anatomy, lifelike, nice background, etc. I hope we can find more about him. You're probably aware of the good ERB things happening in Utah. Disney is doing much filming there for their John Carter of Mars film and a theatrical company there has Disney licence to put on Tarzan the Musical.
Bill ~ ERBzine

 Inclusion in the ERBzine weekly would be greatly appreciated and hopefully get a hit on the artist. Utah has been very good to me with film work. I have been in 34 films since 1983. I was sent here from LA (Tarzana) to film a movie with Robert Mitchum and never left. Thanks for the followup.

Rex Maxon, Tarzan Strip Creator, Back at Gulfport
The Evening Independent ~ December 16, 1942

Gulfport, Dec. 16 -- Rex Maxon, cartoonist, and daughter, Jay, Port Washington, N. Y., are spending their fourth season in Gulfport and have rented an apartment at 2907 Beach boulevard. Mrs. Maxon will arrive a little later in the season. Their son is in the navy, stationed in New York, but expects to leave shortly for officers' training school at Notre Dame.

Mrs. Maxon is staying in New York until their son leaves. Mr. Maxon arrived by train Friday, but his daughter, Jay, has been a student at the Country Day school since the opening of the school term. Mr. Maxon is the artist who draws the Tarzan daily cartoon strip which can be found in a number of Florida papers.

Rex Maxon
(24/3/1892 - 25/11/1973, USA)
Rex Maxon was born in Lincoln, Nebraska. His family moved to St. Louis, where Maxon studied Fine Arts. Here, he also worked on the staff of the St. Louis Republic. He moved to New York in 1917, where he started drawing for several New York newspapers, including The Evening World, The Globe and The Evening Mail. In March 1929, Rex Maxon succeeded Harold Foster as the artist on the daily 'Tarzan' comic. He drew the strip for the next 18 years.

In 1931, Rex Maxon had a brief stint illustrating the 'Tarzan' Sunday page for a couple of months. After leaving the 'Tarzan' comic in 1947, Rex Maxon focused on illustrating cowboy stories for comic books. In 1954 he created 'Turok, Son of Stone' with Matt Murphy for Dell, which he drew until his retirement from comics in 1960. As an illustrator, Maxon was present in Spicy Detective, Private Detective and Speed Wester. In 1969 he settled in London and devoted all his time to painting. He passed away shortly after returning to the USA in 1973.
