Cover Page

This month’s cover features a 1970 pen drawing by John R. Fischetti of an untitled statue by Pablo Picasso located in Chicago. Fischetti was a well-regarded editorial cartoonist who worked for publications such as the New York Herald Tribune, the Chicago Daily News, and the Chicago Sun-Times. As a longtime Chicagoan, Fischetti’s work touched on local issues, but also addressed national issues such as the Watergate scandal, the energy crisis, the economy, and terrorism. He received the Pulitzer Prize in 1969.

The drawing is part of the The John R. Fischetti Collection held by Columbia College Chicago College Archives and Special Collections. The collection contains sketchbooks, original drawings, and photomechanically reproduced drawings, including approximately 3,300 digitized works from more than 30 of his working notebooks from 1960 to 1980.
