PAUL FLORA, 1922 – 2009, was born in tyrol in austria and studied in munich, germany, at the academy of fine arts under the famous norwegian illustrator and painter OLAF GULBRANSSON, who worked for the political magazine SIMPLICISSIMUS. FLORA works first as a caricature artist, later he illustrates books with his very own technique, a very well composed ‘criss-cross’ nib/ink-drawing technique, that makes him famous. following are some illustrations from his 1966 published book ( diogenes publ.) KOENIGSDRAMEN.

Wonderful Paul Flora, and unjustly forgotten as people of the stature of Bosc, Chaval, Tetsu, Hans Fischer, Tomi Ungerer and many other graphic geniuses.
(Not long ago a young artist informed me that Saul Steinberg drew in a “simplistic manner”!!!!!!)

from hans -
hi oscar. maybe we can show the younger generation some of these forgotten treasures. I try my best. hope it will change the quality of things to come ( see the christmas carol film disaster ).
