"A sign you see all the time, and simply the idea of having these guys working: It's one of those startling 'Oh, yeah!' things, which is what a cartoon is all about— a second look at what's going on for real," Mort Gerberg says about this 1962 illustration for The New Yorker.Known for his clever combining of wit and social commentary, Mort has been a working cartoonist for more than half a century. "Men Working" 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.
