    Description

    Oscar Cesare The Saturday Evening Post: "Something Is Going To Happen" Original Art (Curtis Publ., 1910s). An indignant USA (personified by Uncle Sam) braces to send Gen. John J. Pershing into Mexico to pursue the revolutionary warrior Francisco "Pancho" Villa. Inspired by a Villa border raid known as the Battle of Columbus (1916), this tense, understated commentary heralds the US's Pancho Villa Expedition, which ended upon the outbreak of a larger concern -- World War I. A publishing pedigree is not formally documented, but the layout and the marginal notations are consistent with those of Cesare's many contributions to The SatEvePost during this period. Ink over graphite on heavy Bristol board. Image area, 12" x 17". Pronounced age-toning overall and extensive stain-spotting at right. Very Good condition. From A Collection of Great Cartoonists and Illustrators.
