Strube signed Wartime Cartoon
A rare and sought after signed wartime Strube cartoon print, absolutely lovely and in excellent condition. Cartoon is entitled 'For Further Alterations See Alexander's Time-Table' ~ the cartoon shows a railway station with its 'time-table' being amended by British and American soldiers whilst German soldiers look on in frustration from another platform ~ influnced by the Italian campaign. As always with Strube cartoons there is so much to see in the artwork. A little about Strube ~ Sidney 'George' Strube 1891-1956, a notable member of the London Sketch Club in the thirties, Strube was the Daily Expressís editorial cartoonist from 1912 to 1948. For many of those years, the paper had the largest circulation in the world, and Strube became the most popular cartoonist of the inter-war period. He especially ridiculed the Nazi regime and its personalities which found the Daily Express being a banned publication in thirties Germany, and himself on the Nazi hit-list during WW2. A really nice item to compliment any collection, simply scarce as well as an investment opportunity.
