Edward Gorey Pool Party

It is Summer and outdoor parties are in full swing. What could be more swinging than this Los Angeles Pool Party image created by Edward Gorey? These tanned hipsters know that the only way to enjoy the pool is to be dressed in the latest fashion, wear cool sunglasses and enjoy a tall cooling drink with an umbrella in it. Of course, the layer of LA smog is still burning off.

This piece of original art by Mr. Gorey was sold at Swann Auction Galleries in January 2014 and is believed to have been made in the 1960's/early 70's as a magazine illustration.
