Description

(Until January 19, 2020) This concise tribute to the timeless wit of New Yorker cartoonists takes as its inspiration a cluster of flowers as a focal point in each of these ten drawings, which span six decades of covers and cartoons for The New Yorker.  From Barbara Shermund, one of the outstanding illustrators of the magazine’s early years to Roz Chast—one of today’s most accomplished cartoonists, this neat little show is a quick trip through humor in New York’ s – and America’s – most prestigious magazines.
