Leonard Baskin’s Old Man and the Sea

The art collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City includes a sketch circa 1958 by Leonard Baskin (b. 1922; d. 2000) for Hemingway’s “Old Man and the Sea.” Baskin’s drawing (pictured below) depicts Santiago’s noble nemesis, the giant marlin, but the size of the sketch itself is small: just 7¾ by 10¾ inches. (The Whitney obtained this sketch illustration through the Charles Simon Bequest.)
