At a time when Europe was experiencing unimaginable horrors, Arthur Szyk expressed his opposition through forceful artistic depictions caricaturing Hitler, Mussolini, and Hirohito as the evil architects of their regimes' destructive and inhumane policies. Join us for a revealing tour led by Szyk expert Irvin Ungar to explore the life and career of a forgotten yet prolific artist who advocated for civil and human rights and fought odious policies and protagonists.

Irvin Ungar is the foremost expert and leading dealer of the art of Arthur Szyk. Ungar is the author of Justice Illuminated: The Art of Arthur Szyk, the co-producer of the documentary film, Soldier in Art: Arthur Szyk, and the publisher of the luxury limited edition of The Szyk Haggadah (2008) and the Heroes of Ancient Israel: The Playing Card Art of Arthur Deluxe Limited Edition Box Set (2011).
