Arthur Szyk (1894-1951) was considered one of the 20th century's most important creators of political illustrations and caricatures. While largely unknown in Europe, his work is highly regarded in the US. At the beginning of his career, Szyk worked in the style of 16th century prints but later turned to a more modern style. His work was mainly directed against the Nazi terror from its very beginning, especially in Poland, and later against all kinds of oppression. Recently, his work was displayed in Berlin for the first time, thanks to support from the Arthur Szyk Society of Burlingame, CA, Arthur Szyk was an exceptionally gifted artist, and a powerful fighter against oppression.
