Gouache opaque watercolor 1991. This illustration, boldly signed by de Michiell, was commissioned by The New Yorker to accompany an announcement of a Rodgers and Hart revue at the now departed Rainbow And Stars nightclub at Rockefeller Center in New York City. It depicts the legendary lyricist Florenz Hart and composer Richard Rodgers dancing with vocalists Elaine Stritch and Margaret Whiting. A charming caricature in near-fine condition, in archival mat and frame.
