86. [Instrumentalists] [Menuhin, Yehudi. (1916-1999)] Young, Chic. (1901–1973).
"Yehudi Menuhin is a Violinist" - Original Blondie Cartoon

An amusing original "Blondie" comic strip from cartoonist Chic Young, mentioning Yehudi Menuhin. Telling Dagwood not to contradict her because "I majored in logic at school. When you contradict me, you're contradicting Socrates, Aristotle, Plato and Yehudi Menuhin," Blondie is indignant when Dagwood protests: "Yehudi Menuhin is a violinist." Created by Chic Young and his staff in December 1966 and signed “Chic Young” in the third panel. Drawn in ink with crosshatching to Blondie's skirt and an applied benday pattern (somewhat toned) to the armchair in the third and fourth panels. The header, by-line and copyright statements are pasted on, ready for reproduction and printing. Framed to 19 x 7 inches (48 x 18 cm). Some wear to frame; overall very good.
