Sharply Drawn: The Political Cartoons of Louis Raemaekers: 1914–1941

Tuesday, February 6, 2007 to Tuesday, April 24, 2007

Dutch artist Louis Raemaekers (1869–1956) has been called the Great Cartoonist of the Great War. His searing indictment of German wartime atrocities earned him immense fame and political influence on both sides of the Atlantic. From 1914 to 1918, Raemaekers published more than a thousand cartoons, reproduced in hundreds of newspapers. After the armistice, Raemaekers used his art to champion the League of Nations and, later, to sound the alarm against German and Italian fascism. Hoover Archives is pleased to exhibit more than one hundred of Raemaekers’s original works spanning his remarkable career.

Monday, January 22, 2007

Political cartooning has always been fraught with controversy and even danger; today’s cartoonists are not the first to have their work condemned.
