Discussing Forgotten Caricaturists on the Leonard Lopate show on WNYC:
Leonard Maltin on Forgotten caricaturists:
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.
Join us on Nov. 4th at 6:30 PM at the SVA theatre, 333 W. 23rd St, for an entertaining and enlightening visual presentation discussing and celebrating the long forgotten works of Al Freuh, Einar Nerman, Lou Hirshman, Jacques Kapralik, Alex Gard, Sam Berman, George Wachsteter, Alan Jedla, Abel Ianiro, Bill Utterback, John Johns and Kate Carew.
