David Levine

David Levine's caricature of George Soros for the New York Review of Books from 2006 showing signs of his visual difficulties.

I have read the very sad news that wonderful David Levine has put an end to his drawing career due to blindness caused by macular degeneration. It is a real tragedy for the world of art. For over fifty years this genius of caricature has regaled us with his witty and beautiful work on weekly basis. I want to express my gratitude to Mr. Levine for all the marvelous work he has created over the years.

Richard M. Nixon by David Levine from the 70's

Terrible news-there are some interesting shots of him at the LIFE magazine photo archive.

Una gran injusticia, que recuerda (aunque el caso es diferente) lo que le pasó al Negro Fontanarrosa.
