Gibson could draw anything
Who knows what the meaning of this cartoon is--a tiger going rounds with an elephant? But it's hilarious, isn't it? And masterfully drawn. If a tiger could box, this is how one would look doing it.
I haven't seen too much of Charles Dana Gibson's animal drawings; like most people I'm familiar with his slices of society life and exquisite portraits of feminine beauty. This is from a book in the collection of the Smithsonian.
