<< HEARTFIELD CHRONOLOGY – ALL YEARS1940 1941 1942 1945 1946 1947

“Not a single work – be it a poster book cover, endpaper, illustration or whatever – lacks a witty, political punch line; nowhere is the impact achieved by coarse, non artistic means, yet everywhere these means clearly serve the effect […] Often it is a very simple, though always an intellectual idea that [brings about] the political mass impact.”
