Erich Sokol Exhibition in Krems

From Karikaturmuseum Krems.

The highlight exhibition, starting on March 25, will show a selection of Erich Sokol’s best work (1933 - 2003).

Sokol is regarded as a pioneer of a new Austrian school in the caricature scene and satire, and especially within his supreme discipline, portrait caricature. 

Kurt Waldheim

Sokol's cover pages for the Kronen-Zeitung newspaper, the monthly business magazine Trend and the news magazine profil were characterized by their intricacy and subtle humour. 

Also featured in the Sunday Telegraph and in Hugh Hefner’s Playboy, his work was valued by many prestigious magazines worldwide.

Furthermore, Erich Sokol is the namesake for a new, innovative caricature award, which aims at supporting illustrators in their careers all over the world.
