The Art of Harvey Kurtzman Exhibition at the Society of Illustrators

“After MAD, drugs were nothing!” — Patti Smith

The Society of Illustrators is currently exhibiting the work of artist Harvey Kurtzman (1924-1993) in a comprehensive retrospective running through May 11, 2013:

“Cartoonist, writer, and editor Harvey Kurtzman (1924-1993) was the founding editor and creator of the most important comics satire magazine in twentieth century America — MAD. He later founded the satire publications TRUMP, HUMBUG, and HELP!, and co-created Little Annie Fanny for PLAYBOY, considered the most lavish comic strip ever created. Kurtzman was described by The New York Times as having been “one of the most important figures in postwar America.”  - Society of Illustrators

 Imperium Pictures is currently working on a short video about the show.
