    Description

    William E. Hill Among Us Mortals-related Original Drawings Group of 7 (New York Tribune and Other Newspapers, 1920s). Hill's eerily lifelike caricatures remain familiar in surviving pages of Among Us Mortals, a Sunday-comics series of satirical portraits. This selection of vivid individual drawings dates from the same early period of Among Us Mortals and take a similarly realistic-sarcastic approach to caricature in photo-realistic terms. These are, however, rendered in a textured-charcoal medium quite different from the ink-dot pointillism of Mortals. All appear to have originated as newspaper spot-illustrations. Brilliant. Charcoal and watercolor retouching on textured stock. Image areas, 8" x 7" to 14" x 8". Conspicuous age-toning, scuffing, and scattered peeling. Good to Very Good condition.
