Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

“I became intrigued at how seeming reality could be constructed from mere models. Over the more than 30 years that I have been working as an artist, I never ceased to be amazed at how much these figures and toys can tell us about ourselves.”
—David Levinthal

Produced during the final phase of the Vietnam War, Hitler Moves East: A Graphic Chronicle, 1941–43 was first released in 1977, presenting a powerful restaging of events from World War II that remains just as poignant today. Having sold out all but 800 copies, this piece of historical mock-documentary is now available from powerHouse Books.

To a child with toy soldiers and a few tanks, the imagination creates the reality of war. In the hands of two graphic innovators, David Levinthal and Garry Trudeau, the elements of childhood are transfigured into astonishing and sometimes horrifying images. Combining selected archival materials with their own meticulously constructed miniature settings, the authors have provided a haunting recreation of World War II’s most dramatic campaign—the German invasion of the Soviet Union. What emerges from their story is a special sort of truth born of contrast; a visual history told in terms of uncommon contradictions. Traveling precariously between imagination and reality, Levinthal and Trudeau have produced a work which is at once a sublime graphic manifesto and a powerful documentary of men at war.

Biographie de l'auteur

David Levinthal, born in San Francisco in 1949, has been working with toy figures and tableaux as the subject matter for his artwork since 1972. In January of 1997, the International Center of Photography presented a survey of his work from 1975 to 1996. He has received a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and was named a 1995 Guggenheim Fellow. His work is included in numerous museum collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Gene Autry Western Heritage Museum, and The Menil Collection.

Garry Trudeau, born in New York City in 1948, is the creator of the comic strip Doonesbury. Launched in 1970 and awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 1975 (the first ever for an editorial cartoonist), the strip is now syndicated in nearly 1400 newspapers and collected in 60 books. Trudeau has contributed articles to publications including Harper’s, Rolling Stone, The New Republic, The New Yorker, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. An inducted Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, he has received honorary degrees from more than 25 American universities and colleges, as well as several awards from veterans’ organizations for his work on wounded soldiers
