Gerald Scarfe in Czech RepublicThe work of Gerald Scarfe, the world-famous British icon of social and political caricature - and collaborator with Pink Floyd for various 1970s projects most notably The Wall, and Roger's Pros and Cons - has received its Czech premiere at the Egon Schiele Art Centrum in Český Krumlov. The exhibition of more than 100 large-format drawings and watercolours is now open (it opened on April 6th), and includes:

  • political and social commentary and caricatures of British and world politicians, the Royal Family, but also Czechoslovak politicians from 1969
  • cartoons of showbusiness personalities (Woody Allen, Mick Jagger, Madonna...)
  • set and costume design for the English National Opera (Orpheus in the Underworld)
  • album artwork for the Pink Floyd album The Wall - and the exhibition poster shows The Teacher (looking a little more like Scarfe than we've seen previously) to hint at the contents of the show
  • designs for the Walt Disney film Hercules (Scarfe was the first outside designer to work with the studio since Salvador Dalí!)
  • creation of the title sequence for the Yes Minister series which appeared on BBC television

The exhibition is open daily between 10am and 6pm, and is scheduled to run until October 28th, 2012. Our thanks to Martin Smisek for the information about this exhibition.
