    Robert Crumb - New Yorker Magazine Two Page Story "Street Musicians" Original Art (New Yorker, 1996). For such a huge fan of music, Robert Crumb is known for being picky, even downright cranky about what he will, and won't, listen to. Abhorring modern pop music as crass and noisy, Crumb instead champions the kind of old-fashioned entertainment still occasionally found in America. This finely-crafted two-page strip, which first saw print in New Yorker magazine, examines the "busking" scene as it has existed through the years on the streets. It's an unusually tender tale, told with genuine feeling for the subjects Crumb has observed plying their trade upon a mostly uncaring public. The pages measure 11" x 14"; there's the usual amount of white-out used, but the boards are clean and in Excellent condition. This is quite a lovely little "slice of life" story from a true American master cartoonist.
