    Oscar Cesare and Others Political Cartoon Selection Original Art Group of 3 (1900s-'30s). Cesare dominates this fine selection with a symbolic "Beacon of Truth" watercolor, designed with a mortised indentation to accommodate a Depression Era editorial piece in the New York Times Magazine. Similarly commanding is an A.T. Dybryk cartoon, remarking a bitterly contested election for Governor of Illinois; also pictured are incumbent Gov. John R. Tanner and Sen. Shelby Cullom. A third piece, unsigned, is an inventive constitutional collage with watercolor overpainting in a display of freedom vs. tyranny. Various media on varied page-stock. Image areas, 14" x 12" to 23" x 20". Varied degrees of age-toning. Average Very Good condition.
