    Description

    Don Martin - Original Cover Art for Mad's Don Martin Sails Ahead. Few artists in any medium have a style as instantly recognizable as Don Martin, best known for his hilarious illustrations that graced the pages of Mad magazine for many years. Quirky and stylish, Martin's art was always precise and sharply focused. He had a supreme mastery of facial expressions and a delightful ability to render subtly funny moments. The piece offered here, the cover to one of his many paperback collections, is a magnificent full-color example of the quintessential Don Martin. The image area is approximately 8.5" x 14.5", with an overall size, including frame, of 15" x 21". A fabulous piece by a great American cartoonist. From the Grant Geissman collection.
