Strange and nightmarish, and yet frighteningly grounded in reality, the art of Ralph Steadman has tapped into the socio-political id of the world for the past 50 years. Now the work of this legendary illustrator is on display at the Society of Illustrators (128 East 63rd Street, New York, NY).
A Retrospective: Ralph Steadman spans three floors of the building and includes his work for children (his award winning illustrations for Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass), his satirical work for Punch, and his lengthy body of work with gonzo journalist Hunter Thompson. Steadman’s working relationship with Thompson included Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ‘72, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream, with art on loan from Jann Wenner of Rolling Stone.
