    Description

    Oscar Cesare Two Uncle Sams Original Art (1942). The great caricaturist pictures Uncle Sam as a split personality, arguing with himself over a scene of Congressional chaos. The large-scale composition packs a monumental wallop, even without the context of its appearance in print. The publishing pedigree is undocumented, but a rubber-stamp date of 10-18-42 (lower right) places the artwork at a time when Cesare was active with the New York Times Magazine. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 18" x 13". Moderate age-toning, marginal staining, and marginal editorial markings. Very Good condition. From A Collection of Great Cartoonists and Illustrators.
