Cover of 2001 New Yorker - Cartoons of Art


The cover of the New Yorker magazine issued May 21, 2001 shows caricatures of some of the Met Museum’s most famous works of art. I’ll discuss the cast of characters and how you can download images of some of your favorites (legally).

Edward Sorel is an illustrator and cartoonist from the Bronx, NY who designed the cover which is titled, "Monday at the Met," a collection of mismatched subjects on the front steps of the museum.

I found the characters humorous as Edouard Manet’s model for "Young Lady in 1866," Victorine Meurent, follows Vermeer’s girl from "Young Woman with a Water Pitcher" (who is actually without her jug). El Greco’s "Cardinal Fernando Nino de Guevara" listens to a walkman.

On the New Yorker 2001 cover is Watteau’s "Mezzetin" playing the guitar while Hans Holbein’s the Younger’s "Erasmus of Rotterdam" buys ice cream. Two women from Honore Daumier’s "Third–Class Carriage" sit on the museum steps while Madame Pierre Gautreau from John Singer Sargent’s "Madame X" accompanies Francisco de Goya’s "Red Boy," Manuel Osorio Manrique de Zuniga.

Other characters represented are: artist Peter Paul Rubens, with his wife, Helena Fourment, and their son Frans as well as the Polynesian Virgin and Child from Paul Gauguin’s "Ia Orana Maria."

How times have changed from 2001 until today!
The Metropolitan Museum of Art now offers Open Access for Scholarly Content (OASC), as seen on the Met’s Collection Online. Look for the OASC icon below the work of art and you can now download or save the image.

Also available online:
Google Art Project – Google Cultural Institute brings artwork from art institutions into a virtual museum.
The National Gallery of Art offers NGA Images online such as: Leonardo da Vinci’s "Ginevra de’ Benci" (1474-1478), or Auguste Renoir’s "A Girl with Watering Can" (1876) - (a few of my personal favorites).
The Getty Museum offers free Getty Images from the Getty Virtual Library.

There has never been a better time than today to enjoy, study, and appreciate the works of art (online) that you truly love.

You can own a framed giclee print of Edward Sorel's May 21, 2001 cover for the New Yorker magazine, available here from Allposters.com.
