Helen E. Hokinson: Some Clever Little Mountaineer

Of the four original New Yorker cartoons by Helen E. Hokinson offered last November at Doyle New York, three sold below the low estimate. Only one remained unsold: this one. Has Hokinson fallen so much out of fashion? Surely some collector should have grabbed up this original drawing with its well-heeled shopper earnestly posing her naive query.
