This fresh to the market lively cover painting by Earle K. Bergey appeared as the cover of the winter 1948 issue of the Better Publications title Cartoon Humor. A breezy co-ed pin-up girl in a form fitting red sweater enjoys a snowy sled ride frolic, sending a good natured but clearly over the hill dandy into the powder. He doesn't seem to mind the view as  our strawberry blonde sweater girl zooms past. Grapefruit Moon gallery recently purchased seven 1940s pulp cover paintings from an east coast collection belonging to a former employee of the publisher. This has been relined and put on new pine back stretcher bars; painting has been handsomely framed and displays wonderfully.
