Hilarious art-world cartoons from 100 years ago


These are from the New York Armory, which is going to have an “Armory at 100: Modern Art and Revolution” show starting October 11 and going til February 2014. Can’t wait to see these live (and yes, they do live forever)!! Love the Winsor McCay. Cartoons, illustrations, and paintings will all be there. Here’s the description from their Web site:

Works by Duchamp, Matisse, Picasso, Cézanne, Gauguin, and Van Gogh will be on display in The Armory Show at 100: Modern Art and Revolution, which revisits the famous 1913 New York Armory Show on its 100th anniversary. In 1913, the International Exhibition of Modern Art came to New York. Organized by a small group of American artists and presented at the Lexington Avenue Armory (and thus nicknamed the Armory Show), it introduced the American public to European avant-garde painting and sculpture. This exhibition is an exploration of how the Armory Show inspired seismic shifts in American culture, politics, and society.
