Udo Keppler Joseph Puck Magazine Uncle Sam Railroa

Lot 0224 Details

Description
Udo Keppler Joseph Puck Magazine Uncle Sam Railroad Expenses Fines Corruption “The Partners” 1908 Editorial Original Political Illustration Cartoon Newspaper Pen and Ink Drawing
  • Description:
    from the Prestigious Charles L. Howard Collection

    Udo J. Keppler (1872–1956) was the son of Joseph Keppler, owner of Puck magazine. He was a friend of Native Americans, and was named an honorary chief of the Seneca nation. His drawings and artistic style are amazing. This illustration captioned “The Partners” was for Puck Magazine in 1908. It depicts Uncle Sam with the weight of corruption, overcapitalization, taxes, speculation, and high tariff rails on his shoulders. The railroad stands beside him, grants hanging out of this pocket, he carries a mere string that attaches to the load. This piece is extremely detailed and shaded. The face of the railroad man has been edited by the artist. The right corner of the page has been folded and patched. Puck stamp on reverse.

    Winning bidder will receive a Certificate of Authenticity with the drawing.

  • Condition
    The state of preservation of these original illustration drawings that are on average over 65 years old is quite exceptional. Very, very few have any creases, tears or losses to the paper and the ink has remained uniformly vivid thanks to the family’s dry flat storage. Given that these were working drawings from which prints were made the expected edge annotations, highlighting, inscriptions, pasted labels, tack holes, staples, glue residues and scattered corrections can be found variously on the examples as illustrated in the photographs. These all add to the authenticity and immediacy of the Wartime newsroom and pressroom atmosphere, serving to reinforce the iconic status of these rare surviving testimonies to the political illustrator’s art. In a few examples additional notations have been made in the description section of the catalogue text for significant damage, however the condition sensitive collector is encouraged to contact our sale expert for additional lot details in advance of the auction date.
