Description

    Norman Mingo Mad #156 Fiddler on the Roof Cover Painting Original Art (EC, 1973). Oy Vey! You'll plotz from laughter, looking at this classic Mad cover by Norman Mingo, depicting Alfred E. Neuman parodying the film classic, Fiddler on the Roof. Mingo was a mainstay of Mad from 1956, and for nearly 20 years painted scores of classic covers for the magazine. When he died in 1980, the New York Times headlined Mingo's obituary with "Illustrator Behind Alfred E. Neuman's Face." This large, impressive oil on board illustration measures an overall 19" x 26", and has an image area of approximately 17" x 19". The art has been cleaned and laid on a new board, and is otherwise in Excellent condition.
