Arthur Szyk – Bilder gegen Nationalsozialismus und Terror
The polish-jewish artist Arthur Szyk started his career copying the style of miniature-painting and graphic-prints from the 16th century. In his works he was always committed to tolerance, freedom and human rights. Long before the beginning of the Second World War, he confronted the threat of the national-socialist terror in his work. After the German invation of Poland, he could not return to his home, thus fled to London and later into the USA, from where he tried to fight the national-socialist countries with his art. He uncessantly tried to draw the public's attention to the ongoing genocide against the jews. During the Second World War, his works were published in american newspapers, such as the New York Post, as well as in magazines: Collier's, Esquire and Time, to name a few. In the US, his work is still very well renowned, while he is rather unknown in Europe. This catalogue presents a cross-section of his work, mainly focusing on his detailed and imaginative political drawings.
