Arthur Getz moved to New York City in 1935 and, like many of the struggling artists of his time, began submitting illustrations to magazines and other publications. He sold his first "spot" drawings and cover to The New Yorker magazine in 1936; this first cover was actually printed on July 23, 1938. Thus began an association with the magazine that spanned over fifty years and ended with Getz's self-proclaimed "retirement" from New Yorker work in 1988. Fluent in the visual language of both city and country, Getz's boldly colored covers and his curvy signature soon became a recognizable part of the magazine's image. From the late 1940s on it was not uncommon for several Getz covers to appear on the The New Yorker during a single month.

The premium giclée print is produced on thick (310 gsm), textured watercolor paper made from alpha cellulous wood pulp that is acid free. It shares the same vivid colors, accuracy, and exceptional resolution that make giclée prints the standard for museums and galleries around the world.
The premium photographic print is digitally printed on high-gloss premium photographic paper. The result is a unique silver pearlescent finish with stunning visual impact and depth, suitable for museum or gallery display.
The stretched canvas print is the result of sophisticated digital printing technology in which the image is printed directly onto an artist-grade, 100% cotton canvas. The canvas is then expertly stretched around 1.5" wooden bars and carefully finished with hand-painted edges. An acrylic coating protects the stunning giclée print from dust, moisture and fading. (Canvas may not be available for all prints.)
