Signed Cartoonist New Yorker Framed Dog Cartoon Dressing up the Dog in Costume Frank Modell 1960s


This is a great find - this hand signed drawing is by Frank Modell - an illustrator for the New Yorker among others He had several comics involving dogs . This one is 7.5X10 framed to 12X14 . The back of the frame is badly done - no paper on it, someone has removed it.. so it could be redone. Handcolored the iillustration strikes home - at least for us.. dressing up the dog --- to go out..

It reads "Whats more important that you don't catch cold or that people laugh at you "... likely something I would say!

I had it hanging for a while here at home, I purchased it at an estate sale several years ago based on content not on the illustrator.

I don't find a market for fake Modell's so I Believe it to be original.
If you need other images just let me know. Frame is metal style - black with matting as seen. Back is foam back with NO paper, I am guessing someone removed it and reused it ..
