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 1949 cover he depicts a lone hunter in the snow, far from civilisation with just his dog for company. 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."
