Lee

 

Back in June of this year, I had the good fortune to interview Lee Lorenz, the former New Yorker Art Editor (and later Cartoon Editor).  The event was held at The Westport Historical Society as part of the festivities surrounding their exhibit, Cover Story: The New Yorker in Westport.  My thanks to all the good folks at the Society for hosting the event and to Gemmarose Tummolo of Spot on Pictures for filming it.

Here’s the Lee Lorenz entry on Ink Spill’s “New Yorker Cartoonists A-Z”:

Lee Lorenz ( Pictured above. Photograph taken 1995 by Liza Donnelly) *Born 1932, Hackensack, NJ. Lorenz was the art editor of The New Yorker from 1973 to 1993 and its cartoon editor until 1997. During his tenure, a new wave of New Yorker cartoonists began appearing in the magazine — cartoonists who no longer depended on idea men. Cartoon collections: Here It Comes (Bobbs-Merrrill Co., Inc. 1968) ; Now Look What You’ve Done! (Pantheon, 1977) ; The Golden Age of Trash ( Chronicle Books, 1987); The Essential series, all published by Workman: : Booth (pub: 1998), Barsotti ( pub: 1998), Ziegler (pub: 2001), The Art of The New Yorker 1925 -1995, (Knopf, 1995), The World of William Steig (Artisan, 1998).
