ORIGINAL CARICATURE OF CAPOTE together with HAND-WRITTEN NOTE.

1977. Double matted and framed together. The original image depicting Capote as an underworld figure in a pin stripe zoot suit with U.S. flag stitched on the arm, brandishing a machine-gun "violin" case with a warhead missile protruding. Rendered in India ink on stiff drawing paper, measuring approximately 12 x 14". It is by well-known caricaturist Taylor Jones--signed by him and dated 1977. Taylor drew caricatures for the Los Angeles Times Syndicate before joining Tribune Media Services. Among his clients are The Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Seattle Times and many other dailies; he has been a frequent contributor to The New Republic and U.S. News & World Report. The note, in Capote's hand, is on a single sheet measuring approximately 4 x 6". The words go well with the haughty/hostile image: "Dear Sir -- I do not have time to answer your request -- T. Capote." Fine.
