James Stevenson: Morning Reprieve

The second original cartoon by the late James Stevenson (1929-2017) shown at the Westport Historical Society on April 25, 2014 during the exhibition "Cover Story: The New Yorker in Westport" presents a scene of uncertain domestic tranquility. Stevenson has placed the kitchen window in the center of the composition, allowing the couple to be backlit from opposite sides.

"Good morning, my dear. Could that look mean I'm not on your hit list?"

Note:  With the passing of cartoonist James Stevenson (1929-2017), Attempted Bloggery would like to hear from anyone with original artwork, photos, or signed books that shed light on this essential New Yorker artist.
