Peter Arno Singing & Playing Piano

Was very pleased  to see one of Stanley Kubrick’s Arno photos make it into The New York Times review of the Kubrick photo exhibit. The reviewer, Arthur Lubow, had this to say about the photo:

A striking shot at the piano of Peter Arno, the New Yorker cartoonist and bon vivant, with eyes shut and mouth open, an ashtray holding down the sheet music, is composed with masterly precision.

More From the Buchanan Files via Lynch

Dick Buchanan has reached into his extensive clip file for a fun bunch of cartoons from the 1930s. Most of these folks were published in The New Yorker, including Dorothy McKay whose drawing  below appeared in Life magazine.  See the rest here on Mike Lynch’s blog, posted May 3, 2018.

The other New Yorker cartoonists in the post: Gardner Rea, Gluyas Williams, Whitney Darrow, Jr., Charles Addams, Chon Day, Richard Decker, Ned Hilton, George Shellhase, Leonard Dove, Syd Hoff, Otto Soglow, and William Steig.

Below is Ms. McKay’s entry on the Spill’s A-Z:

New York Times Robert Grossman Obit

Here’s the Times obit of Mr. Grossman written by Neil Genzlinger — it’s in today’s paper.  Glad to see Mr. Genzlinger mentioned Mr. Grossman’s stint at the New Yorker as well as including The Yew Norker.

Back in 2013 the Spill posted a map of Manhattan (“The New Yorker’s New York”) showing where various New Yorker  folk once lived. Here’s another address I’ll eventually add to the map:  75 1/2 Bedford Street, otherwise known as  the narrowest house in New York City. It was once the home of William Steig.
