In full: "There seem to be a lot of autograph and cigar band collectors in Pennsylvaina. Sincerely" Gluyas Williams (1888-1982), who trained as an artist in Paris at Colorossi's Atelier, became one of America's leading graphic cartoonists. Both "The New Yorker" and "Life" magazines vied for art from Williams, who was known as the master of gesture. Williams illustrated and wrote a number of books, including Of All Things (1924), The Gluyas Williams Book (1929), From Bed to Worse (1934), Fellow Citizens (1940), People of Note (with Laurence McKinney, 1949) and The Gluyas Williams Gallery (1957). Although his cartoons generally depicted life in middle class American suburbia, they had universal application and appeal, and by the time of his retirement in 1953, Williams was known to over five million readers worldwide. One horizontal and two vertical folds. Lightly creased. Slightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
