Underground comics pioneer

there's a works-on-paper retrospective at the Museum of American Illustration, at the Society of Illustrators on the Upper East Side of Robert Crumb. i've heard that he's pretty reclusive and a "curmudgeon"...

"Hogarth, Grosz, the Fleisher brothers, Tex Avery, Charles Addams, et cetera are great artists. And so is R. Crumb. In certain ways, he may be the greatest of them all."
—Jim Jarmusch, The Life and Times of R. Crumb (St. Martin's Press)

Robert Crumb (b. 1943) is considered the premiere underground comix artist of his generation. With only a smattering of issues and titles such as Zap, Motor City, Head Comics, and Despair, Crumb deconstructed the american comic book, revolutionizing the form forever. Over four decades later, his impact continues to be felt worlwide.

This retrospective, curated by Monte Beauchamp, editor of The Life and Times of R. Crumb (St. Martin's Press), presents key pieces culled from the underground art collection of Eric Sack, with contributions from Paul Morris and John Lautemann.

R. Crumb: Lines Drawn on Paper is made possible in part with public funds from the Fund for Creative Communities, supported by New York State Council on the Arts and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
