This is a wonderful political cartoon painted for Steel Magazine in the 1940s. World leaders are around a poker table. In front of each is the steel production numbers for their country. Hitler is scratching his head, thinking about his attempts to win. Mussolini is sweating over the meager production of Italy. Hirohito is trying to look tough. Stalin, Roosevelt, and Churchill seem to be playing with little to no show of doubt. This framed piece is signed in the lower left corner. ( I cannot make it out.). On the back is a hand written message from the original owner in 1950. Professionally framed by Demsederfer of Pennsylvania, it measures 22 x 14 inches including frame, the image measures 18 x 10 1/8 inches. The matte is 1 inch wide all around and is darkened with age. Condition is very good to excellent.
