Alice Harvey (1895-1983)

Two men talking in field.

“As I live and breathe, Harry, it IS a skunk”

Gag cartoon, The New Yorker, June 5, 1926;

Carbon pencil & watercolor, 14.5 x 15.7" signed lower right.
Condition is good to very good: light surface grime; paper toned with age, and has some rippling. Archivally matted but not framed.

Harvey's quick, sketchy drawings have an insouciance that is matched by her always-unexpected captions that sound accidentally natural.
