William Gropper: One of America’s greatest twentieth century social and satirical artists, William Gropper studied painting and printmaking under George Bellows at the Ferrer School in San Francisco (1913-14), at the National Academy of Design (1914) and at the New York School of Fine Art (1915-18). He was first employed as a staff artist for The New York Tribune (1919-21) and later for the New York World (1925-27). During this time Gropper also contributed many drawings to Leftist publications such as ‘The New Masses’ and ‘The Liberator’. By the mid 1920’s William Gropper had established himself as a major satirical artist and lithography became one of his most potent weapons for launching his attacks against big business and big politics.
During the following decades William Gropper achieved a fine reputation around the world. In 1958, for example, he received the Young Israel Prize.
