‘No country has produced, in the narrow limits of this medium, a fantastic philosopher such as George Herriman. Herriman’s work is curiously distinguished; I can find no precedent either for its kind of invention or its graphical style. To an extreme sensibility of touch, a wistful ironic humour, he adds something more — some subtle understanding of human susceptibility of which he alone, beside Chaplin, is possessed.’ — Paul Nash, in The Week-end Review, London 1931
NASH. British illustrator, war artist, woodcut revivalist, painter and art critic Paul Nash (b.1889) paid his first visit to the US in 1931. He had a lot in common with Krazy Kat author George Herriman (b.1880), ‘the geometric order of nature’ was just one of his interests. The Week-end Review — subtitled: “of Politics, Books, The Theatre, Art and Music” — was a successful little London paper edited by Gerald Reid Barry, published in 1930-34.

 The 1922 strip about Herriman wearing a flat straw hat — a skimmer — was found by Rick Marschall and included in his book series The Komplete Kolor Krazy Kat (1990).
 The photo of Herriman in the same hat comes from a book by Patrick McDonnell, Karen O’Connell and Georgia Riley de Havenon, Krazy Kat; The Comic Art of George Herriman (1986).
 The Paul Nash quote from a 1931 issue of the Week-end Review comes from the reprinted text in the New York Sun, August 19, 1931, where Nash’s article is titled ‘American Comics, a Foreign Appraisal of the Masters of Humorous Pencils’.

 The original color drawing of the Krazy Kat cast was auctioned on August 27, 2015, by Heritage Auctions — ‘The World’s Largest Collectibles Auctioneer’ — see HERE.
