“Linda at Six”, oil on canvas, 18″ x 12″, by Chuck Jones, 1943. Linda Jones Clough, the only child of Chuck Jones and his wife, Dorothy, recalls playing a ‘game’ with her father where she would select a book from their extensive library and bring it to her father and he would recite the first paragraph without opening the cover. 

Linda Clough would go on to found Linda Jones Enterprises, the representative and publisher of Chuck Jones original and limited edition artwork as well as produce many of her father’s later film work, including “Mrs. Doubtfire” and “Peter and the Wolf” for which she won an Emmy Award in 1996.
