The Colors – John T. McCutcheon

Gold and green are the fields in peace

Red are the fields in war

Black are the fields when the cannons cease

And white forevermore

John Tinney McCutcheon (1870 – 1949) was an American cartoonist who influenced an entire school of cartoonists – “The Midwestern School” as it came to be known. Based in Chicago, McCutcheon was a noted political cartoonist; and his “Bird Center” and “Boy in Springtime” homely themes of social cartoons inspired Clare Briggs, Frank King, Gaar Williams, Fontaine Fox, and many other cartoonists.
