Peter Arno: La Vie Parisienne

The worldly Peter Arno wants you to know your way around Paris. Note how well he handles the lighting of this after-dark street scene and how distinctly out of place the American couple at the center of this image appears.

"We've lost our tour."
Peter Arno, The New Yorker, July 4, 1953, page 30

Note:  How many blogs do you think can give you a tour of original New Yorker cartoon art? I promise you won't get lost.

If I'm counting right, there are 67 previous blog posts here which mention Peter Arno. Have a look at any or all of them, but remember:  I can't keep this up forever. If you'd like to share any original art, correspondence, photos, or obscure Arno publications, get in touch—and soon!
