About This Item

Pulitzer prize-winning editorial cartoonist with the "Chicago Tribune" (1903-45). Signed ink drawing, 14¼" X 16", n.p., n.y. [probably 1918]. Very good. Slightest bit of edgewear. Fun and handsome two-panel cartoon titled "Reciprocity" along the bottom in McCutcheon's hand, with two subtitles. The top panel is titled "They've been giving you a lot to cheer about." (It was first titled "They are giving you something to cheer about now," but McCutcheon altered some of the language in pencil.) This depicts a group of prancing, cheering men, hats flung up in the air, and behind them a bulletin board with the announcement "War Bulletin / Allies / Investing / St. Quentin." (The Germans had attacked this French city in March 1918, just before large numbers of American troops reached the front.) The lower panel is titled "Next week it will be your turn to give them something to cheer about." (As wi the previous caption, McCutcheon altered the original -- which read "You must give them something to cheer about next week" -- in pencil.) Here another group of men -- this time all soldiers -- prace and cheer, with various helmets tossed up in the air. Behind them to the left a bulletin board reads "Important! / Americans / Investing in / Liberty Bonds," while to the right appear blackened ruins. Signed simply "McCutcheon," as usual.
