In December of 1937, Goldberg and his wife attended a party which featured the newest dance craze, The Big Apple.  He was so inspired by the dance that he drew this cartoon for the hosts of the party.

This is the first time this work has ever been printed for sale, and we are pleased to bring it to you in a museum-quality fine art giclee print. The print is 16" by 12" on Satin Cotton Rag (285 g/m2).

The inscription reads:

To Dottie Aylesworth and her pop and mom, in appreciation of the grandest party of 1937 - Rube and Irma Goldberg

Learn to Dance "The Big Apple" In One Easy Lesson.
