Magazine story illustration, Saturday Evening Post, 1923;

Carbon pencil and wash, 11.5 x 17" signed & dated. Condition is good overall: board is brittle and toned with age; archivally matted and framed in a narrow stained-wood moulding.

Raleigh's ability to depict with empathy every layer of life as well as every social situation kept him busy at numerous publications, and for the Saturday Evening Post, he appears in almost every issue during the 1920s. 

Bears engravers number P5415a.
