Arthur Szyk (b. 1894 / d. 1951)

Arthur Szyk was born in Lódz, Poland to a Jewish family on June 16, 1894.  During this time Lodz was under Russian rule.

Sent to Paris, France in 1909, by his father, Szyk studied at Académie Julian. Despite being exposed to modern art/artist, Szyk kept his works in traditional ways.  During 1912 and 1914 the teenage artist produced numerous political themed drawings and caricatures that were published in the Lódz satirical magazine Smiech. (showing 500 of 2869 characters).
