Political Cartoon Original Art, undated
11.75in. x 17in.
Signed lower right: Winsor McCay
Winsor McCay was a master at drawing complex tableaux in correct perspective, and could draw any subject, from any angle. His work was influenced by book illustrations and the then current Art Nouveau style. In addition to his famous comic strips and animated films, Winsor McCay also drew editorial cartoons for Arthur Brisbane's conservative editorials at the Hearst papers. Along with these political statements, he drew large, meticulously executed Sunday illustrations of moral ideas, using such subject matter as education, the danger of drugs and alcohol, and the values of hard work. The graphic sophistication of Winsor McCay's art is unparalleled in American comics.
The art is in Very Good condition.
