Sullivant Original V


 SOLOMON'S ADVICE TO A YOUNG MAN ABOUT TO BE MARRIED

"The first hundred wives are the hardest."


This illustration appeared in LIFE magazine on January 19, 1922. Sullivant drew several cartoons referring to King Solomon and his many wives. This one measures 23 x 14".
With apologies regarding its outdated humor. But there is a lot to admire here, the composition, simplified anatomy among other things.

  1. I love how everyone is low-key snickering, including the lion.

  2. I never imagined that Sullivant's originals were so large! Must be 300% of reproduction size, or more.
