He also invented the life-sized carnivalesque cutout holes for people to insert their faces, instantly transforming them into amusing characters.His 16 dog series was originally created as an emerging advertising strategy to engage customers with “remembrance advertising” done in 1903 for the ad firm Brown & Bigelow.This piece you have is a later print (not an original) from circa 1920 and has a current value of $30.00.It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.
