Its first feature on Searle profiled the artist in 1948 with this lavish 6 page spread. Exposure such as this must have helped Searle establish his reputation in the years after WWII.
Wonderfully loose St. Trinians sketch on the right.
In 1958 issue 80 printed an 11 page spread on Searle and his work
In 1980 issue 212 profiled Searle again with text by Dr. Alexander Duckers
Searle contributed several spectacular covers:
Issue 80 A frightening Picassoesque female artist
Issue 129 (1967) Stuck for an idea Searle creates a cover from the very problem of 'artists' block'!
Searle managed to use this rejected cover from the New Yorker for a 1973 Graphis cover
