50 Years Ago: Dick Sargent

Clutter by Dick Sargent

Artist Richard “Dick” Sargent created 47 Post covers in the ’50s and early ’60s. As shown in this March 31, 1962, cover illustration, Sargent’s framing technique turns humorous snippets of everyday life—warts and all—into a compelling story. Will the harried husband ever find his pants and escape the cluttered closet?
