Seller. Debbie Kendall of The Enlightened Hound.
"Painter, illustrator and cartoonist Abe Birnbaum created over 150 covers for the New Yorker from the 1940’s to the 1970’s, capturing some of life’s quieter moments with charm and wit. In this 1948 cover he perfectly depicts the pomposity and humour of the competition dog show with his line-up of Old English Sheepdogs. The New Yorker magazine was first published in 1925. Still going strong today, it covers a variety of topics from current affairs, biographical studies, reviews and events in the city, short fiction, commentaries on popular culture and cartoons. Its iconic covers are commissioned by well known artists, illustrators and cartoonists, on which dogs are a regular feature.
Framed in a custom made reclaimed wood frame (to complete the vintage vibe) - hand painted and waxed. Each frame has its own pattern of knots, dinks, scratches, nail holes, wonky edges and aged patina. Fitted with crystal clear acrylic ’glass’ and ready to hang."
