The Book of Drawings. 213 Drawings of Māris Bišofs

Māris Bišofs

Album of drawings by well-known drawing and caricature master whose works have been published in globally known press editions, among them The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, etc.

Bišofs’ drawings reveal his links with many traditions – the thousand-year tradition of book illustration, modernist art, which his drawings quote both directly and indirectly, and definitely the tradition of caricature and humorous drawing. A good number of his drawings are based on observations, situations accidentally spotted on the street, from a tram window, in a shop. There is at times nothing unusual or funny about the situation, the author has simply found it interesting or arresting. However, for the most part they are not just observations and are not just to be observed – they contain an idea and have to be understood.
