Peter de Seve Retrospective Tonight

By Peggy Roalf   Thursday September 21, 2023

Best known to the general public for his New Yorker covers, artist Peter de Sève has done the public a favor by cleaning out his studio and making many of his originals available. Opening tonight at Philippe Labaune Gallery is a full-on retrospective of his works on paper. The selection on view spans de Sève's career, “providing clear insight into an illustrator who '’draws like a god'’, as Françoise Mouly, Art Editor of The New Yorker, puts it.” So let the pictures tell the story. Above: Peter de Sève, Grinch expressions; below, New Yorker cover art
