Fritz Eichenberg (1901 - 1990_ was born in Cologne Germany, studied there and in Leipzig and began his career as a book and magazine illustrator in Berlin in 1923. In 1933, the rise of Hitler and Nazism forced him to flee Germany (he was both Jewish and politically outspoken) and, with his wife and children, he came to America and settled in New York City. Though his prolific output was primarily as a book illustrator (Dostoevsky, Poe, Erasmus, the Brontes, Swift) he was not afraid of large images. His style, once seen, is almost immediately recognizable, for, in his technique, white-shaded figures emerge from black backgrounds with often chilling dramatic effect.
