Pop Art: Garrett Price Proposed New Yorker Cover Art

A New Yorker magazine cover proposal by Garrett Price follows a contemporary art movement downstream into art school. The widespread appropriation of comic book and comic strip characters onto the canvasses and smocks of art students shows the massive influence of the Pop Art movement. As a practical matter, Price probably couldn't have expected to get an image of Dagwood Bumstead or Mickey Mouse onto the cover of The New Yorker in the 1960s. Even if he did, the idea of getting the name Phlembrant past the editorial eye of William Shawn was simply preposterous.
