"California, here I come!" - Chasing FDR
 

Senator on donkey with spirit of FDR riding to California

Milton Nenahlo

USA 1913-1944
pastel 17x12

This Milwakee artist / political cartoonist, enlisted  in 1942 and was killed in 1944. One of his last commissions was his illustrations to Tolstoy’s What Men Live By. . This piece rivals the best work of the period.

The text reads: “Twas Popsie Cotten ‘tween you and me / who spread the word of  Franklin D.” Probably an ironic comment on Ed ‘Cotton’ Smith, SC Democrat who fought FDR on every turn. His comment that "Anyone could live on 50¢ a day," reversed, became an FDR classic line.
