Chris Beetles Gallery British Art of Illustration Includes Work by Sorel and Roth




The Chris Beetles Gallery (across the pond) is putting on, according to the gallery,  “the largest and most popular annual event worldwide for cartoon and illustration collectors.”

More from the Gallery:

One substantial section of the exhibition allows British illustration to be considered in the context of the parallel American tradition. The sinuous line of Al Hirschfeld (1903-2003) caught the essence of theatrical performance for over eight decades in his caricatures for The New York Times Similarly, David Levine (1926-2009) portrayed luminaries of the literary world for The New York Review of Books, including great writers from Akhmatova to Voltaire. This tradition is brought up to date by major examples of the work of those living masters, Ed Sorel and Arnold Roth – the second of whom will open the show with characteristic wit and aplomb.
