A new exhibition in the Masters of Polish Caricature series at Warsaw’s Museum of Caricature and Cartoon Art showcases work by celebrated cartoonist Zbigniew Lengren (1919-2003).

Lengren was a graphic artist, cartoonist, caricaturist and illustrator, and he also designed posters and theater sets. The exhibition at the Museum of Caricature and Cartoon Art explores many aspects of Lengren’s work and features a wide selection of his cartoons, illustrations, posters, set designs and animated films. The focus is on Lengren as a man with a great sense of humor, hence the prevalence of satirical drawings, comic strips and other funny pictures.

Lengren had his first caricatures published in 1944 in a magazine called Stańczyk. Two years later, he started working for the popular magazine Przekrój. His pictures were also printed in other illustrated magazines such as ¦wiat and the satirical Szpilki. He illustrated a number of books and also wrote satirical poems and stories. In addition to Lengren’s work, visitors to the museum can see photographs from his family archive, items from the Koziołki Foundation for European Satire in Poznań, and footage from the vaults of Poland’s public television broadcaster.
