Give Me Your Tired, Huddled Masses
"This was so essentially New York City, it seemed like such a natural pairing," recalls Mort Gerberg of his illustration for pulp magazine Swank in 1965. "Just one of those things where you look around, combine a couple images, and suddenly a cartoon is coming out of it."
Known for his clever mix of wit and social commentary, Mort has been a working cartoonist for more than half a century, most notably for The New Yorker. "Liberty Hails" is one in a series of limited edition prints we're offering (just 10 of each), numbered and signed by him with the same pen he uses to draw. Framed in solid ash wood with a double-thick mat, it's a gift for the person who enjoys art with a wink. Printed and framed in Oregon.
$10 from your purchase goes to the New-York Historical Society, a premier cultural institution dedicated to preserving the richly layered history of New York and the US. If you’re in Manhattan, please visit their exhibit of Mort's work, on display until May 5th.
