Gregory d'Alessio: Innocent Ankles

Cartoonist Gregory d'Alessio (1904-1993) published work in the New Yorker, Esquire, College Humor, and Collier's, and was syndicated nationally in newspapers. Later, he taught drawing at the Art Students League in New York. A clipping of a 1951 color cartoon of his published in Collier's can be found on Amazon, of all places. It illustrates the legal tactic of professing a female client's innocence to an all-male jury.

Note:  This is the artist's first appearance on this blog. According to Ink Spill, Gregory d'Alessio's New Yorker work appeared between 1934 and 1940. Attempted Bloggery seeks scans and photographs of original cartoon art by Gregory d'Alessio as well as other New Yorker artists. Clippings of cartoons and illustrations from other publications are also sought to round out our appreciation of this artist. Mr. d'Alessio's New York Times obituary may be seen here.
