Description: Man weeping at woman's bedside, she nonplussed
Comment: So often, it seems to me, Cooper's work set itself apart through his use of unusual angles and perspectives… here's a great case in point. Look also at the angles of the man's body as compared with the peaceful pose of the woman. Her face though says it all… definitely an “Oh pleeease… the drama...” moment. Sold to benefit the Acquisitions Fund of Society of Illustrators Permanent Collection.
