Looking at Memorial Day covers in The Complete Book of Covers From The New Yorker 1925-1989 this morning, this fabulous piece by Arthur Getz jumped out. 

Here’s Mr. Getz’s entry on the Spill‘s A-Z:

Arthur Getz 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.
