(June 9, 1901 – January 12, 1995
) was an American cartoonist
who was born in Fort Lee, New Jersey
. After doing advertising
artwork in his youth, Price started doing cartoons for The New Yorker
magazine in 1929. He continued contributing to the New Yorker
well into his eighties, displaying a talent for both graphic innovation (many of his cartoons consisted of a single, unending line) and for a wit that somehow combined the small issues of domestic life with a topical sensibility.
