Charming cartoon on the transitions of marriage by Mort Gerberg. Mort is one of the most prolific cartoonists in the world; his work for the New Yorker spans more than 55 years.
This piece was published in the New Yorker on April 22, 1996 with the caption, "You used to have a funny little laugh, Marshall. What happened to your funny little laugh?"
Ink, ink wash, and white out on 11" x 14" heavy card stock. The gentleman's head is a replacement drawing that was cut and pasted onto the original. The piece is taped to a protective cover with a tear sheet from the magazine. Minor ripple to the page from ink wash application. New Yorker production sticker on the reverse side. Overall, excellent condition.
