French Soldier Wearing Shorts]
Available from more sellers
Original pen-and-ink cartoon drawing. Roughly 6 by 8 inches. Rifle-toting soldier wears a Cross of Lorraine, the emblem of Free France on his uniform. Probably from 1943-1946, when Williams was a staff illustrator for the New Yorker magazine. Only seven of his drawings ever appeared in the magazine during his three years there, but it did lead to a connection with New Yorker writer E. B. White, who recommended Williams to illustrate his children's books, Stuart Little and Charlotte's Web. Small red mark in upper right, else fine. Signed 'G.W.' in ink and 'Garth Williams' in pencil.
