Arrowood, Clinton (1939-1990)

An alligator dressed in an eighteenth-century coat and breeches holds a viola to his chin and a bow at his side. A fish tail sticks out of his left pocket and his talons protrude from his buckled shoes. The image is wryly captioned: "I certainly don't want to let them know that I am superior."
This delightful caricature is a printed illustration by Clinton Arrowood from Donald Elliott's book Alligators and Music.
