Sir David Low

Sir David Alexander Cecil Low (1891 – 1963) Born and educated in New Zealand, he worked in his native country before migrating to Sydney, Australia in 1911, and ultimately to  London in 1919, where he made his career and earned fame for his cartoons satirising the personalities and policies of  Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin and other leaders of his times.  His work for The London Star and The Evening Standard chronicled the rise of fascism in the 1930s, the policy of Appeasment and the conflict of World War II.  His work was banned in Italy and Germany.  He was knighted in 1962 and died in London in 1963.  His obituary in The Guardian described him as “the dominant cartoonist of the western world.”
