    Helen E. Hokinson (1893-1949) Original Magazine Art (1940-1945). For two decades Helen Hokinson's lighthearted cartoons about a group of society matrons delighted New Yorker readers. In 1931, she met her collaborator, James Reid Parker, who supplied the captions for her drawings. Hokinson published several books of her popular cartoons, among them, My Best Girls in 1941. A fine example of her work for the New Yorker, this is rendered in watercolor on paper, measures 19 x 13 and is signed lower right. The caption reads, "Hello - badminton champion!"
