THURBER, JAMES. 1894-1961.
Original illustration, pen and ink on paper, 8 1/2 x 11 inches, signed ("James Thurber"), [c.1930s], matted and framed, excellent condition.
This cartoon, which depicts a woman presenting her beleaguered suitor before her scowling mother and Labrador, captioned in pencil below the image: "Mother will read your palm while I get dressed, Mr. Oliphant." The linework seems to fit most closely with Thurber's work of the mid 1930s and, although there are no markings, could certainly have been for the New Yorker.
