If you’re a fan of contemporary illustration, then you must be a fan of Brad Holland’s work. In a nutshell, Holland arrived in New York City in the late 1960s from the Midwest, and proceeded to help shape the world of illustration from the get-go. Holland arrived with a mastery of pen and ink, but he also brought with him a conceptual approach that would become the standard in publications like the New York Times Op-Ed section, or the NY Times Book Review under the art directorship of Steven Heller. Brad Holland’s original drawings are hen’s teeth rare. They simply do not show up for sale. I’m am quite pleased to be able to offer a wonderful caricature of J.C. Suares, who was the very first Art Director for the NY Times Op-Ed section, and a wonderful designer-illustrator in his own right. Holland worked with and for Suares for many years, and this drawing appears on a short letter that Holland wrote to Suares. The letter reads: “J.C. I found these things in an envelope that bore your name. Who knows what else I may have here for you? Brad” The caricature shows a wildly long-necked Suares reading the letter, while craning his neck between his legs, in his best Mister Fantastic impression. The letter is dated November 21, 1978. This piece was drawn on standard 8½”x 11” letter stock, and has two mailing folds. It was framed by Suares, and you can see some light sunning, and a couple of small pieces of linen tape on the back upper edge. Rare, rare, rare stuff by one of the true masters of contemporary illustration. $500.00 + 10.00 shipping.
