Illustration for the New Yorker Magazine, 1926, by Russian born artist Vladimir Bobritsky (1898-1986). Bobritsky lived through a turbulent time, and eventually left Russia and travelled to quite a few countries, finally ending up in Spain. He excelled in many areas but is best remembered for his graphic illustrations.

This cover displays an exciting combination of the culture and style of the Roaring Twenties, and the bold brush strokes of Constructivism and Cubism, two very influential art movements in Brobritsky’s youth.
