Herbert Block (1909-2001), the political cartoonist better known as "Herblock," became the most honored cartoonist of his time, winning three Pulitzer Prizes, and sharing a fourth for his Watergate cartoons which contributed to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. He was the only living cartoonist whose work was exhibited in the National Gallery of Art, and the only living cartoonist to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He caricatured thirteen U.S. presidents, from Herbert Hoover to George W. Bush, chronicling American history from the 1929 Stock Market crash through summer 2001. He took on causes with courage and conviction, coined the phrase "McCarthyism," forced reform and became the most influential and enduring political cartoonist in American history. The Civil Rights Movement was one of Herblock’s chief concerns. He illustrated the history and dialogue of this turbulent era in American society. His cartoons show us who we were as Americans, as well as the lessons to be learned from the Civil Rights Movement. Looking at Herblock’s political cartoons over seven decades we realize he was one of those people that fought long and hard to make us a better people. Herblock’s cartoons continue to resonate and will speak to us about these crucial events in our history for many generations to come. 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday; noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 5; 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on April 21, 22, 23, 24, and 25; noon to 5 p.m. on April 26; other evening and weekend hours and group tours available by appointment.
