This cartoon which satirizes the art world is designed to look like an astrological wheel. It was featured in the May 1956 issue of Art News. This is a clipping from the magazine, a two page spread, page 36 and 37 on one side and on the other, page 35 and 38. Pages 35 and 38 each bear a portion of two different articles unrelated to the cartoon.
A portend of the artist as a yhung mandala, 1956 May. Ad Reinhardt papers, 1927-1968. Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution.
