David Levine 1926-2009

If you have ever read the New York Review of Books ( I am assuming if you are here, you have) then you have encountered the beguiling caricatures of David Levine (above). He passed away last Tuesday and it is a sad day for Drawing. He is interviewed in the book Drawing the Line by Garry Groth (741.5973 G8814). Otherwise we have a Ref book at the 741.5973 L665 slot. I would put David Levine in league with Daumier. If you can think of a better comparison, please leave the name in the comments section.
