Comment: The prestige of having ones artwork reproduced on the cover of The New Yorker meant that the competition to be chosen was fierce. Many artists did fully realized proposals for inspection by the art and editorial staff. Even the most respected and prolific of cover artists had only a small percentage of their total output reproduced on the magazine’s cover.
