Steven Heller Crafts New Szyk Essay for The Atlantic

21st-century efforts return Szyk's political art to public consciousness

Anti-Christ. New York, 1942.

NEW YORK—Steve Heller, design expert and author, recently interviewed Irvin Ungar and on May 29, 2014 published a widely-shared essay on the political and social significance of Arthur Szyk’s art.

Referencing Szyk works such as “Anti-Christ” (right), the portrait of Japan’s Admiral Yamamoto which appeared on the cover of Time magazine (December 1941), and “Modern Moses” (1944), Heller discusses the messages of justice and freedom Szyk represented, and Irvin Ungar’s tireless campaign to raise Szyk awareness through presentations, exhibitions, and film.
