    Description

    Rube Goldberg - Editorial Cartoon Original Art (undated). Beginning after his fifty-fifth birthday in 1938, Rube Goldberg started doing three editorial-page drawings a week for the The New York Sun, with topics of his own choosing. Rube chose a simple and more powerful drawing style, a departure from his trademark of the fine line and draftsman's approach. His editorial cartoons carried their message with directness and impact, and were strong editorial statements against America's enemies, atomic war, poverty and corruption. This undated editorial is titled "Shadow on Liberty," and was drawn in ink and crayon on coquille board. The art has an image area of 11" x 12". There is some slight aging; otherwise the condition is Very Good.
