Great review of an artist,

Great review of an artist, Arthur Szyk, that I should have known about but did not. His work is being exhibited at the National Holocaust Museum and it apparently has been causing much consternation.
Szyk was a political artist, in a way that Ben Shahn, another Jewish political artist was not. While the former encountered tremendous European anti-Semitism, the latter improvised on drawing from a more purely fictive “imagination” rather than a political one. I have to know find out more — thanks to Victor Sparrow.
