The Life and Art of Mary Petty
November 5–December 15, 2019

Cartoonist Mary Petty (1899-1976) is known for the witty and pointed cartoons of the upper class of early 20th century America that appeared in The New Yorker for 39 years. Some of Petty’s earliest illustrations featured independent, free-thinking women, while her later works concentrated on the lifestyles and attitudes of inherited wealth and her invented Peabody family. Petty was married to fellow New Yorker cartoonist Alan Dunn, whose works are also included in the exhibition. Dunn’s works, which comment on architecture, politics, and social issues, complement Petty’s observations on modern life. The spirit of their independent compositions, unified by a shared sense of humor, is timeless.

This exhibition is generously sponsored by Patrick F. Crossman in Memory of Elizabeth D. Crossman, with support from Peggy Sue Atterbury and Joan Vinson.

Additional support is provided by Anonymous, Tara Balfe Clifford/Cliftara Bed ‘n Breakfast, George and Madeleine Hughes, Pamela McKee, Thea B. Pinskey, and Eric and JanElaine Smith.

The Life and Art of Mary Petty is organized by the Syracuse University Art Galleries.
