How the Game is Played: Peter Arno Original New Yorker Cover Art

Whether at Illustration House or Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Peter Arno's original artwork for the New Yorker of September 8, 1951 touches a nerve with collectors. The lofty sale price goes even beyond an appreciation of Arno's talent and reflects the art's status as a classic image of baseball.
