    Description

    John Harmon Cassel (as Jno. [sic] Cassel) Puck Original Art (Puck Publishing Co., 1899). Biting satire from a humorist whose career straddled two centuries: Cassel turns a placid domestic scene into an embittered commentary on hostilities in the Third World. (The woman is knitting a garment for war relief in the Philippines.) Beyond the bold brush-strokes and the inspired facial expressions, there is a hidden surprise: Cassel re-drew the right half of the piece and pasted it in place with a delicate job of trimming and retouching. His abandoned version of the woman appears under the upper layer. The signature uses the archaic abbreviation of John. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 18.25" x 15.5". Light age-toning and marginal scuffing, with scattered pin-punctures. Very Good condition.
