Ronald Searle at Ninety

jacket image
Ronald Searle, the master of modern caricature who, since 1995, has plied his sardonic trade on the coveted op-ed pages of the French daily newspaper Le Monde, turned ninety last Wednesday. To mark the occasion Searle gave the Britain’s Channel 4 News his first interview in over thirty years which you can view below. The interview offers a brief history of Searle’s prolific career as well as an interesting look around the artist’s studio. But for a fuller look at his work check out the press’s 2002 publication, Ronald Searle in Le Monde—offering more than a hundred of his cartoons from Le Monde that range in topic across politics, the new Europe, the nature of the contemporary economy, social games, and more. Find out more about the book, or view this sampling of five cartoons.
