Arthur Szyk (1894 – 1951) was a graphic artist, book illustrator, stage designer and caricaturist, who regarded himself both as a Pole and a Jew. From 1921, he lived and created his works mainly in France and Poland, and in 1937 he moved to the United Kingdom. In 1940, he settled permanently in the United States, where he was granted American citizenship in 1948. He gained real popularity through his war caricatures, in which, after the outbreak of World War II, he depicted the leaders of the Axis powers.
