Vladimir Bobritsky (1898-?)

Caricature of Fred Astaire in golf clubs.

Magazine cover, Golf magazine, April 1940;

Gouache and assemblage, 12 x 8.8" not signed. Lettering, head and shoes are on separate sheets which have been mounted down. Handsome mat and gilt frame.

It is hard for me to imagine that Astaire was so well known that readers would have recognized that this was a caricature of him.
