If we were asked what truly distinguishes Irv Wyner’s work we would immediately say his way of intensifying the theatrical possibilities of natural light. He heightens, simplifies, distills. The result is as immediately readable and seemingly simple as a cartoon and yet packed with detail and an acuity of observation that takes your breath away. Here he faces the banality of an idyllic farm scene squarely and transforms it into something witty, sly, dramatic and satisfyingly concrete. A graphic master and a magician of color. One of the cohort of mad geniuses at Warner Brothers Cartoons whose work is still unmatched for daring, humor, and sophistication.
