The presentation at the Society Of Illustrators “12 Legendary Caricaturists You’ve (Probably) Never Heard Of,” last April by Drew Friedman and Stephen Kroninger attracted a sell-out crowd. Â Be a part of the continuation of this event on November 4th!
The work of masters of twentieth century celebrity caricature, among them Miguel Covarrubias, Jack Davis, Mort Drucker, David Levine, Ronald Searle, Edward Sorel, Robert Grossman and especially Al Hirschfeld continues to be reprinted, celebrated, and discovered by new and younger audiences. Sadly, there are many once hugely popular and in-demand celebrity caricaturists whose work, for one reason or another, has been largely forgotten and rarely warrants a mere mention in most books on the art of caricature, including the recent INFINITE JEST. Illustrators Drew Friedman and Stephen Kroninger aim to rectify that situation by presenting the work of 12 great, yet neglected and forgotten caricaturists.
This event will immediately follow AI-AP’s Big Talk 2015.
