Saturday Evening Post cover, October 11, 1958

Daily life is the real subject of most great illustration art.  It is the democratic art par excellence, and this work illustrates it consummately.  The deliverymen, stock characters of domestic life of the time meet for lunch.  Pleasure, warmth and camaraderie are delightfully rendered.  One supplies the food, and the other provides the beverage. This Stevan Dohanos Oct. 11, 1958 The Saturday Evening Post cover depicts the occasion in rich detail, and like the slice of pie, it is a satisfying slice of life.
