Paolo Garretto

An artist at the plate, with great offensive instincts. In the 20s and 30s, his remarkable pastel, gouache, or pencil caricatures for Vanity Fair, Fortune and other magazines became the indelible mind's-eye versions of the figures of his time. You want to know who Al Smith was? See Garretto's Al Smith, Vanity Fair, October 1934.
