    Description

    Alice Harvey "Does He Bite?" Original Art (c. 1950s). Harvey, one of the hippest of the New Yorker cartoonists, had anticipated a New Yorker style of droll sarcasm even before The New Yorker magazine has been launched. That was during the 1920s, at the humor-conscious Life magazine. Harvey grew, too, as times changed. Her midcentury bobby-soxer babysitter, here, is patently a creature of the 1950s. Caption: "One more question: Does he bite?" Ink, crayon, and opaque watercolor (drybrush) over graphite on deckled off-white watercolor stock. Image area, 14" x 11". Light toning; lightly nicked edges/corners. Excellent condition.
