The show presents more than 30 works by Roz Chast, a beloved American cartoonist, best known for her contributions of cartoons and cover art for The New Yorker magazine.
The works by Roz Chast, on loan from the artist and the archives of The New Yorker, include many examples of Ms. Chast’s iconic work from The New Yorker, as well as prints and drawings from other projects.
“We are delighted to be showing the work of our friend and fellow Connecticut resident Roz Chast,” says Peter C. Sutton, Executive Director of the Bruce Museum. “We are fortunate to have such a talent right in our backyard. Roz’s works bring humor as well as wit and charm to the Museum.”
In addition to Ms. Chast’s cartoons, prints and drawings, also on display are tapestries and painted eggs decorated with the artist’s signature images in the pysanky tradition. Easter egg, or pysanka, decorating is an expression of traditional Ukrainian folk art.
