LOT NOTES
Kukryniksy was a collective name derived from the combined names of three caricaturists: Mikhail Kupriyanov, Porfiri Krylov and Nikolai Sokolov who had met at VKhUTEMAS, a Moscow art school, in the early 1920s. The three began drawing caricatures under the joint signature in 1924. They became nationally famous in the 1930s after the rise of fascism, drawing for Krokodil, the Moscow satirical paper. They received international recognition for their attacks on Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Heinrich Himmler, Joseph Goebbels, and Francisco Franco.
