We bought this piece as a study but it turns out that it's not a study, it's a complete painting but an alternative version to the one thats shown on the cover. 


The New Yorker, March 20, 1937

Swiss born Roger Duvoisin studied at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Alberto Giacometti was a classmate. An American textile manufacturer brought him to America as a designer, but when the company failed in the Great Depression, he turned to illustrating children's books. He was one of the first artists to introduce Modernism to American picture books and won the Caldecott Medal in 1948. Two of the most profound influencers on his work were painter Henri Matisse and child psychologist Jean Piaget. He also designed New Yorker covers from the 1930s into the 1950s. This study varies only slightly from the published version.
