Works by outstanding Polish caricaturist Eryk Lipiński will be on display at Warsaw's Museum of Cartoon Art and Caricature throughout the summer. Lipiński founded the museum 30 years ago.

The exhibition, entitled Satyra i Humor (Satire and Humor), commemorates the 100th anniversary of Lipiński's birth and the museum's establishment in 1978.

The exhibition will showcase more than 250 works by Lipiński from 1932-1991. These include satirical drawings, cartoons, caricatures and comic strip series published in magazines such as Szpilki, Przekrój and Przegl±d Kulturalny. Also on display are film and theater posters. The works come from Lipiński's family collections and the collections of the Museum of Caricature and the Poster Museum in Warsaw's Wilanów district.

Eryk Lipiński (1908-1991) was a caricaturist, satirist, journalist, graphic artist, poster designer, book illustrator, columnist and writer of books dedicated to the history of caricature and satirical drawing. He studied painting, graphic design and stage design at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts (ASP) in 1933-1939. He made his debut as a caricaturist in the Pobudka weekly in 1928. He co-founded the Szpilki satirical weekly in 1935 together with Zbigniew Mitzner.

Lipiński was the curator and a participant of the First International Poster Biennial in Warsaw in 1966. He also founded and was the first president of the Polish Caricaturists' Association (SPAK) in 1987. He received many prizes and state awards for his artistic achievements.

Lipiński contributed to many Polish periodicals and publishing houses as a draftsman, illustrator and graphic artist. For 10 years, he was linked to the Dudek Cabaret as a satirical writer. He was also involved with stage and graphic design, designing posters and record sleeves.
