Garrett Price's work appeared in Life over a brief period of time in the mid-to late-1920s. His crisp, unweighted lines, spotted blacks and use of half-tones as a design element rather than a rendering tool complemented the more modern approach to cartooning and illustration that had been gradually achieving dominance over the look of the magazine for at least a decade.
A versatile illustrator and cartoonist, Price drew many covers and cartoons for The New Yorker. A sampling of his illustrations for short stories published in American Girl can be found here, and a 1919 cover he painted for St. Nicholas is here. And you don't want to miss White Boy.
