A Day at the Races: Leonard Weisgard Proposed New Yorker Cover Art

This beautiful illustration of a harness race is by Leonard Weisgard. It is a proposed cover for the New Yorker magazine and reportedly dates from the 1940's. Weisgard sold two covers to the magazine in the late 1930's, but none of his submissions were published after that time.
