Overview

Great art has an enduring place in our hearts and society because it says something about who we are. And that's what makes these cartoons about art, the artistic life, and our responses to them so much fun. The themes are timeless: Is it noteworthy? What is the artist trying to say? Why did he paint a soup can?

The New Yorker's cartoonists have found endless humor in their fellow artists and in the art-loving public (as well as those who are dragged along to exhibits). The subjects of their wry wit range from the famous heavy hitters of art history to amateur strivers, and from swank museum shows to lonely artists at the easel, searching for a muse.

With more than one hundred cartoons, this collection is a masterpiece bound to amuse fans and friends of art and artists.
