    Description

    William E. Hill Among Us Mortals-related Original Drawings Group of 10 (New York Tribune and Other Newspapers, 1920s).
    Hill's satirical, photo-realistic caricatures were the stock-in-trade of Among Us Mortals, a long-running Sunday-comics feature. This selection of individual spot-drawings dates from the same early period of Among Us Mortals and takes a similarly true-to-life approach. These are, however, rendered in a textured-charcoal medium quite different from the ink-dot stippling of Mortals. All appear to have originated as newspaper illustrations. Each face tells a story with wordless eloquence. Charcoal and white watercolor on textured stock. Image areas, 9" round to 8" x 10". Conspicuous age-toning, scuffing, and scattered peeling. Good to Very Good condition.
