Exhibit of Interest: New Yorker Cover Artist Arthur Getz; Review of Interest: Aline Kominsky-Crumb’s New Book; Follow-Up: John Cuneo’s Spring Cover

From The Hotchkiss Library of Sharon, “The Art of Arthur Getz: City and Country” an exhibit of work by the most prolific of all New Yorker cover artists.  Opens May 5th.  

— My thanks to Stephen Nadler of Attempted Bloggery for bringing this exhibit to my attention. Be sure to check out his site today for an interesting piece on Mischa Richter.

Mr. Getz’s entry on the Spill‘s A-Z: 

Born, Passaic, New Jersey, 1913; died, 1996. New Yorker work: 1938 -1988. Primarily a cover artist, he had one cartoon published: March 15, 1958. (You might say his career was a mirror image of George Price’s, who was one of the most prolific cartoonists, with over 1200 published, and one cover). According to the official Getz website, he was the most prolific of all New Yorker cover artists, having 213 appear during the fifty years he contributed to the magazine. The official Getz website, containing his biography: www.getzart.com/
