DescriptionJack Davis TIME Magazine Cover Original Art (Time-Life, 1976). Davis, as prolific as he was consistently brilliant, graced TIME with many a cover -- usually providing broad caricatures of famous and powerful individuals. This figurative depiction of an ordinary middle-class family, struggling in the grip of runaway economic inflation, is a powerful exception -- and as true today as it was 'way back in the Bicentennial year. The facial expressions are as powerful as anything Davis ever delivered for MAD Magazine or Tales from the Crypt, and the dynamic imagery is dizzying in its illusion of headlong motion. Gouache and white chalk highlighting (speed lines) on illustration board. Image area, 15.25" x 21.75", matted to 20.5" x 27. Faint scuffing in white background area (upper left quadrant). Excellent condition.
