New Yorker Cartoonist Edward Sorel

Mother's Day
Taking a Break at the Met

One of the biggest oversight of modern illustration has been the absence of Edward Sorel from the pages of the New Yorker until the mistake was corrected with the arrival of Tina Brown who signaled her arrival with the above cover.
Here are a few classic Sorel cartoons, published in The Atlantic:
Milhous I, Lord of San Clemente, Duke of Key Briscane, Captain of Watergate

John Mitchell

George Wallace
