Barbara Shermund, 1899-1978 created the original artwork and humor for this New Yorker cartoon in the early 1930s. Shermund painted and drew nine covers and six hundred cartoons from 1925-1942. All artwork was her creativity with no help from gag writers that some artists used.
Liza Donnelly in her book about the women cartoonist at the New Yorker, FUNNY LADIES, devotes a chapter to Shermund and refers to her through out the book.
The cartoon is acid-free matted and framed measuring 22 1/2 inches high by 27 inches wide.
