    Winsor McCay - Editorial Cartoon Illustration Original Art (c. 1920-30s). An American Family just trying to keep afloat in the turbulent times of the Great Depression. This deft and biting political cartoon clearly shows why McCay had such a long and prosperous career in the field. And that's not counting his long list of newspaper cartoons (including Little Nemo in Slumberland, and Dream of the Rarebit Fiend) or that fact that he is the father of modern animation with his cartoon Gertie the Dinosaur. This intricate piece was rendered in ink over graphite on Bristol board. Signed in the lower right of the 18" x 9" matted image area. It is glass front framed to 26" x 17.25". In Excellent condition.
