Description
Auerbach-Levy gained notoriety both as the preeminent caricaturist of his time and as a fine and established painter and etcher. His caricatures of prominent people caused Alexander Woolcott, who wrote that, "The true gift of caricature is rare", to rank Auerbach-Levy among the few finest exponents of the art.
