March 14

The Art of Arthur Szyk

Gary Tiffin

Arthur Szyk was a graphic artist; he is considered by many to be the finest 20th century miniature artist. He was appointed Court Painter to the League of Nations. He was also a cartoonist who skewered Adolf Hitler mercilessly. Hitler placed a $50,000 price on his head due to his more than 400 widely published cartoons. He escaped Europe, living in New Caanan Connecticut during World War II. While in the U.S, he was commissioned by a stamp album publisher to make title pages for a series of about a hundred albums. Szyk died after completing only a few; those he produced are masterpieces! But the publisher was so disappointed that the commission wasn't completed that he didn't use any of them.

Gary will present examples of his art and cartoons. 

Alert: Linn's advertises the date of our show as Saturday, March 17. Please tell your friends: our date really is Sunday, March 18.

See the Library page for a listing of the contents of the SSS Library. It is searchable in your browser, and about half the library is in this current list. Lisa Janz is generating a very informative and attractively displayed list, but it takes time!

See the Shows page for information about the Willamette Valley Stamp Exhibition, happening in conjunction with our STAMPEX show on March 18.
