R.I.P. David Levine

David Levine died at 83. I have been a Levine fan for a long time, after getting to know his work around 1996/'97 when doing an exchange-study at SVA in New York.

Not only did I love his famous pen and ink-style caricatures (who didn't he portray?) but also his water-colors were a feast for the eye. His work always had a timeless quality that will be kept alife simply because it will be visible through so many artists' caricatures showing that David Levine touch.

To me David Levine is the personification of a genre.

An extensive gallery (over 2500!) of caricatures he did for The New York Review of Books is visible here.
