    Description

    Gene Elderman Washington Post Editorial Panel Comic Strip Original Art (The Washington Post, 1941). Adolf Hitler had berated his Axis partner, Benito Mussolini, for yielding to British forces in Africa in 1941. In this masterful, large-scale cartoon, Elderman calls Hitler as cowardly as Mussolini -- preferring to assail the less well-prepared African troops. From late in Elderman's tenure at the Post. The artist soon enlisted in the Army and became cartoonist for the Office of War Information's magazine, Victory. Ink and crayon over graphite on Coquille (pebble-grain) board. Image area, 14" x 17.5". Light toning. Excellent condition. From A Collection of Great Cartoonists and Illustrators.
